I worked with Joe at Pratt & Whitney many years ago. He was a hard worker and very helpful to the various groups his department supported. Joe always had a great disposition and sense of humor. He certainly will be missed by his friends and family.

I am deeply saddened by the news of Joe's passing.  We met in the 6th grade at St. Francis School and later found that we had both moved into the same neighborhood in North Palm Beach.  From that point on, we were the best of friends.  The memories are all great ones--from rating records as young teenagers to knocking back a few as club patrons in our early to mid twenties.  His family was special to me, as well--Joe Sr., Betty, Steven, Susan, and Michelle.  Joe was in my wedding party in 1974 and later held both my children as "Uncle Joe."

How I regret now that during the past 25 years we didn't see each other.  But I will always have the memoriies of a terrific friend and warm and caring person.  We shared much--and I honor his life.    Love you, Joe.

  I was only fifteen when I met Joe, he was sweet and shy, very kind and funny.
