Joe, You were a wonderful brother. You have always had a special place in my heart and your kindness and help to us was great. Spent many an hour with you and Marge, Thanksgivings for many years, special occasions, in the death of our son "Ron" and many many visits that you traveled to see us and spend the day. We will miss the visits, phone calls and we are so fortunate to have all the many memories and love you showed us. You were a great giver, kind, and very good to all people and helped many in their needs. You will be missed greatly. We know you are at peace and no pain. Your sisters appreciate all the times you helped each and everyone of us, Evelyn, Ruth, Marie and myself, Betty. Thank you "Joe". You will be missed by Bob and Betty.

Uncle Joe was my Mother's twin brother, so he always held a special place in my life. He was steady, reliable, strong and kind. Uncle Joe lived with integrity and honor.

I guess I knew Joe as well as anyone outside of his family.He was not only a very thoughtful man and one you really wanted as a friend.A very good golfer and now is joining the other 3 of our 4 some.Hit 'em straight Joe they won't give you any strokes.
Indianapolis has lost a really really nice person who was very proud of his kids.
