Joe was my boss for three years at the USPS, but someone I have cherished for nearly forty. I would always seek him out at Miller Park just to share a laugh or a hug. He was simply one of the kindest most respected people I have ever met. My deepest condolences to his family.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the Young family. We may have never met a more kind and caring man than Joe. He always made a point to seek us out at the ball park and start a conversation. He stated more than once that he wasn't worried about trouble makers because he knew that Santa had his back. Baseball games will never be the same without Joe but we know that he will looking down at us and smiling!

Unlike the previous entry who did not know Joe but knew his son I knew Joe and he was the real deal. One of the most congenial kindest Gentleman I have ever met. Whenever I am down all I have to do is visualize Joe's pleasant demeanor and that is all I need. His passing makes me very sad and I wish to express my condolences to the Young Family. Since I work at the Ball Park I am sorry to say I will be unable to attend his funeral. Best Regards, Richard Lulloff

All though we didn't know him, we know his son, Dash. As demonstrated by the fabulous results of Joseph and Agnes' parenting, we can say, as is said in the game, 'he put on a clinic'. We wish you all Godspeed.
