Dear Linda, Jen, Tiffany I am broken hearted by your loss. This is a big loss for anyone who knew Joe. We have know Joe, Linda and the girls for many years. Joe was my husband Dave’s BFF. We have so many great and wonderful memories of our times together. Joe was a true family man and a great friend. Joe will be missed. Cherish the memories and hold him in your heart as I will. Joe and Dave are together again playing cards and joking around as they always did. Rest In Peace dear Joe. Nancy, Erin and Jessica

Linda & girls....My sincerest sympathy Joe was quite the fellow -loved to laugh and was that happy go lucky fellow with such a positive attitude -as he would write a ticket his days working with the town. He certainly adored you Linda and his lovely daughters. May all the good times with him live on forever in your hearts. Thinking of you at this sad time. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Linda and family so sorry for your loss. I dealt with Joe a few times over the year when he had his business. He was a pleasure to deal with. His humour and personality made every purchase a great experience! I’m so sorry for the void he will leave in hearts of many.
