I was saddened to learn of the death of George "Junior" Joseph. His family lived across the street from my grandmother on Wales Ave and he was a favorite in the neighborhood. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family

Mr. Joseph was a wonderful neighbor of ours growing up on the southside of Binghamton. My Father James King built their house..
He always had a beautiful garden fresh vegetables. At Christmas our parents James and Lula King had mr. and Mrs. Joseph hide our Christmas bikes in his garage. When we were out playing baseball we saw Mr. Joseph riding a bike around in his garage. We knew that Bobby and Vinny were too small for the big bikes.
Virginia Joseph was a healthcare nurse and I remember after my son Michael was born she came to see how he was doing. We have a lot of fond memories of both Mr. and Mrs. Joseph. Sending love and peace,

Mr. Joseph was our neighbor
I remember the time that he was hiding bicycles in his garage .
Our parents Jim and Loula King at 5 Burr Avenue
Thought it was a good idea to hide our Christmas gifts at Mr. Joseph's garage.
We king children watch mr. Joseph riding our bike in his garage.
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph always had a beautiful garden. They were the best neighbors you could've asked for. My sympathy goes to the family.
We all have fond memories of the whole family. Rest in peace
