Joe was a close personal friend of my family. He was a kind man and a true gentleman. He will be missed but not forgotten by all those that had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest in Peace.

Although I didn't know him, always heard about what an interesting historian of a man he was. You leave a legacy that is a benefit to us all. May you Rest in Peace Mr. Guernsey. He may have known some of my deceased relatives of his time as well.

Mr. Guernsey left quite a legacy for all of us to remember and follow. His kind, stable manner and his strong faith in God is a testimony of a life well lived. Love to Mary and Teeny. Liz, Alice, Margeret and Max ( The Blakey family )
