Not sure what to say?

I met him at the Recovery Education Center. He was one of the nicest people I ever met and he always made sure to take time out of his day to say hello to each and every one of us by name when we saw him. His presence will be missed greatly.


My sincere condolences to family and friends. May the God who binds up the brokenhearted and comforts all who mourn, sustain your family during this difficult time - Isaiah 61:1, 2.

Joe was one of my earliest childhood friends. He and his family moved away from our original neighborhood, but we still visited as young boys. He loved learning the drums, and every Christmas was a hope for a nicer drum set. We lost touch, but then reacquainted when we both were enrolled at Liberty High School. I was playing music at Liberty High School when we again met, and I learned that Joe had played his trumpet for taps for military funerals.

In the late 80's or early...

Joe always greeted everyone by first and last name at the Chew street REC. He prided himself on taking the time to know everyone's name. He was a kind and wonderful man, that I am pleased to have called my friend. RIP Irish Santa Claus. :)
