  5. Maria, I worked with Joe in the auto industry. I was shocked to hear of his passing. He was always fun, a true gentleman, and a wealth of information. I will keep you and Joe in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Dear Friends and Family of Joe, I worked with Joe for several years at Peyton Cramer. He truly was a great guy. One of the few men that was just funny, fair, happy, and a pleasure to work with. To his wife, he often spoke about you at work and all such wonderful things. Knowing he truly loved you while he was alive should bring you some comfort during this difficult time. As much as he loved you, he must be angel now watching over you.

  7. Dear Mrs. White, I went to school with Joe from elementary school through high school and he was one of the most kindest, sweetest and tallest (at least to me) boys I have ever met. I vividly remember while in the 6th grade, Joe was assigned a desk in front of me for a while. Joe never once pestered me, pushed his desk back to bump mine, called me names or any of the foolishness many of the other boys had done. Joe was a sweetie and I will always remember him as the tall, quiet cute boy from school. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Maria, during this time of loss. Sincerely, Teri (Hall) Yonaka
