I will always have good memories of Joe. He was a great husband, father and friend to so many people people including me. Joe was also just a very good person; maybe the best thing you can say about someone. My thoughts and prayers to Jane, Joe Jr, June and all family members

Dear Mrs. Jane and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Joe was such a wonderful person and will be missed by everyone that knew him. I will always remember our early morning breakfast conversations at Betty´s Quick Stop. Mr. Joe had a way of entertaining us all and always enjoyed pouring coffee for everyone (even Bill occasionally). My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Respectfully, Joshua Montgomery
