My condolences to you Rosie and your entire family.  Joe was one of those who always had a smile, a joke to tell to make your day a little better.  I know he made my dad enjoy going to work and helped him after my mother died.  Joe, you made life better for so many  RIP

I worked with Joe for a short time on Lock n Dam 5A, I found him to be much like my dad, straight talker-good sense of humor and a square shooter. It was a pleasure to know him

I have fond memories of Joe growing up. I can still remember when Roseanne lived in an apartment above us and Joe came over with a whip, scaring us and saying he was Santa Claus. Seriously he was a lovable man always with a smile on his face. He will be missed.
