Not sure what to say?

I am looking at your pai ting of Eag,e creek falls thzt you gave to my father. John Wallen when you were both at Te,tronix. It brings me grest solace to look at this painting which has been part of my life for more than 50 years. I am saddened to finally find you, but too late.

You are in my thoughts.

Joe was one of my husband George's and my favorite people. It was a privilege to know him... Two favorite paintings hanging in my home were done by Joe, reminiscent of the vibrant 1960s, the era when we first knew him. I send my thoughts and love to all the family.

What a wonderful understated dear man! Joe's humor was gentle and playful with friends, and yet he remained a fierce champion of causes dear to his heart, and was not shy to critique injustice wherever he saw it.
As a fellow photographer I have enormous respect for Joe's keen eye for humanity and right-on framing. A modest master was Joe. And a generous and caring spirit.

Love and blessings to Anne and all his family and friends who also mourn his passing.

So sorry to hear of Joe's passing. I have such great memories of getting to meet much of his family at the birthday party reunion he and Anne held a few years back. Such a gentle man.
Susan Miller (niece of Anne)

fun memory: his beat up blue Studebaker with green bushes hanging out of the trunk... always!

spent six or more years sitting a few feet from him every day. One gets to know someone very well... at
Tektronix in the communications dept. Learned much from him! how to avoid his wicked blue pencil edits on virtually every word I wrote...

I enjoyed Joe's news stories in the 1950s in the Hillsboro Argus. I send sympathies upon his loss.

My thoughts are with you, Marcia and family.
