Not sure what to say?

I had the pleasure of watching Joe on TV 2 when I was growing up outside of Detroit. There are not very many anchors left like Joe on TV anymore. Joe loved to deliver the news straight, and he also loved the public service side of his job.

My condolences go out to Joe's family, colleagues, and friends.

I had the pleasure of working with Joe at KSBW. When he was hired all the others anchors got demoted to make room for him. I was one of them. I was pretty young and cocky at the time, and so not too happy about things. But when Joe arrived it all made sense. He was just so great at what he did. It was impossible to have a chip on your shoulder because he was so talented and so nice. Eventually I left and moved to the Midwest and we lost touch. But one day I got a call from him when I...

May you find comfort, strength and hope in the Father of comfort and tender mercies.

He quietly served as a volunteer for Save a Stray, a local, all volunteer nonprofit in Mobile, AL. He helped our cats by doing the dirty work, without complaint, always being there. I'm thankful to have been associated with this fine man.
