Joe always had a kind word for me and Donna and he really liked it when Donna would come to the Fairgrounds with me because he would have someone that he could speak French with, He was a wonderful man and he will be greatly missed, Now he and Sarah will be together forever. Rest in Peace my friend.

Back in the 50s and 60s Joe wrestled for Nick Gulas at the old Hippodrome on West End Avenue in Nashville, with Corsica Jean. Now Jean and him are teamed again wrestling for Nick in that golden arena; two out of three falls with an everlasting time limit. This is only bye for now, til we meet again. We love you Joe and you will truly be missed.....George Gulas and Family.

Mr. Joe we knew this day would come. I can rememember all the stories you would tell and would laugh when you would fuss because Miss Sara would not hurry up. After she passed away I remember you telling me how you visited her every day while she was there. And all the little stories of things she done while there. You will be missed Mr. Joe but now you are in a better place. You are in heaven with Ms. Sarah. God bless you my friend.
