I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Joe's family on his passing. I'm sorry to have missed the wake and speak to Lou as well. I golfed with Joe and Lou many times in the Tuesday morning men's group at Oak Knoll. Joe and I also discussed the Cub/Cardinal rivalry since I am a life-long Cardinal fan. One day he told me that his father in Donora, PA had coached my boyhood idol, Stan Musial. To confirm the story Joe showed me a photo of him as a teenager (I think) standing next to Stan the Man. Another story has to do with Joe's impressive golf skills. The group always competed for greenies (closest to the pin) on par 3 holes. One day I hit a great shot on number 18 that ended up pin high, an inch from the hole, a sure greenie I thought. As I walked to the hole, I saw the marker INSIDE the hole with Joe's name on it. I believe it may have been his 6th one, and he was in his late 70s or early 80s at time! Aside from his athletic prowess, I was blessed to have known Joe as a golf buddy. May he rest in peace and his memory be eternal.

Uncle Joe, You were always my favorite Uncle when I was a kid. I remember having a little picnic in my back yard and you getting something in your eye. Aunt Edie was trying to get it out and you were complaining and yelling for me to get her off of you. I was probably only eight or nine maybe younger but I remember it vividly....like it was yesterday. I was laughing so hard. RIP Uncle Joe you have and will be missed.... Love, Kevin
