Betty, Kevin, and Doris, I would like to send my condolences to you all. Betty, Joe was a good friend to my Dad, and as I remember pretty nice guy when I was little. I was so nice to see you both you and Joe at St. James. I know that he is in a better place now and will be watching over everyone

I was very sorry to hear of Joe&s passing. I knew Joe from the Elks club. He was one of my playing partners in the 15 or so years I was a member there. He befriended me when I first joined in the early 1980&s. Although he was my fathers age, I always thought of Joe as a friend. There was no one that was easier to play golf with. He was a true gentleman, and had the grace and sense of humor that made it a pleasure to spend the 3 to 4 hours with it took to play a round of golf. I don&t belong to The Elks anymore, but, whenever I visit to play golf, I always think of and ask about Joe. I&m sorry I didn&t get to see him before he became so ill. I will miss Joe, but whenever I visit The Elks I will have fond memories of Joe and the good times we shared on the golf course. Please accept my condolences, but know that Joe is in a better place and he left many friends that knew it was a privlilege to call him a friend.
