I remember Joe in High school and how he worked so hard at the Mercantile Exchange. I enjoyed going downtown to visit him at work and he was a good neighbor growing up i Glenview. May you find peace in knowing that he is in a better place.
My deepest regrets, Connie (Stem) Blaida

Joey was a bonus gift that came with my close friendship with Nancy Nathanson Roberts since the the late 70s. And he was a gift that never stopped giving. He was truly an original and I feel so lucky to have known him. The world is a little darker without his bright light. My sincere condolences to all who loved him.

I was lucky enough to know Joe in high school,way back when things easier! I just learned of his health issues last Christmas when I was in Chicago.Peter Boudart told me when I asked him if he knew how I could get in touch with Joe. I'm very sad. I want to offer my condolences to all of his family members. He's with the angels now.

My condolences to the family. I have fond memories of all the family get togethers. JOEY was always available to help my elderly parents with chores around the house. A few months ago JOEY joked about reconnecting with my dad in heaven and wondered if he would have to do more chores! Rest In Peace good friend.
