Joe, and his dear wife Ruth, were cousins. While we were somewhat younger, over the years they were very much a part of our lives. Joe would always love to attend the Fish Fry at Camp Peace and would always come over the first day of buck season to "see what we killed." (Glenn thinks he really came to drink coffee and to eat lunch with the boys.) We know that Joe was a believer and we take solace in knowing that he is now reunited with Ruth and that they are worshiping at the feet of Jesus!

So sorry for the loss of this wonderful man. I worked with Joe back in the early 1980's. There were so many things to Love about this Great man, but the one thing that always was my favorite, Joe had an unshakable faith. Rest In Peace My Friend
