I have many memories of Patty growing up.. Many great memories of him and his family spending time with my family. My heart goes out to Joey and Jackie. Hugs to you all.

My sincere condolences on the passing of Joe, a loving father and brother and friend to many.
Joe had the ability to make people laugh, which is truly a gift. Even if he had a gripe he wrapped it in a joke. He made me smile on days I didn’t have much to smile about. I know he is at peace now and free of pain.
