It is with a sad heart that I write this message. I had the pleasure of working with and supervising Joe from 2012 - 2017. Joe had an out standing work ethic and great attitude, which is directly connected to his Christian faith and morals. I never had to worry about what or how Joe was working, because he was diligent, honest, and full of pride in his work. He was a good example to all. St Joe Schools will truly miss his presence.
But I can not be sad for long! I know Joe has gotten his prize of eternal life with his Lord and Savior! May God's peace and grace give comfort to Paula, his daughters, family and friends.

Joe is and always will be my brother. I praise God for putting you in my life! Your love and service to God and His Son Jesus Christ, were evident in how you lived your life in service to others, and the love and devotion you always had for the family that God gave you. Your service at ISI(Iron Sharpens Iron) helped me grow in Faith and Love with Our God and His Son Jesus Christ. You raised your kids and headed your house hold to know and serve The Lord. You were a good brother and mentor to me and I will always be grateful. Your helping to spread God's Good News was evident every time I was with you. Thank you my brother! ❤️🙏🙌 Steve

I will deeply miss seeing him around the school. I got to know him when my son played sports. We would shoot the breeze while getting the fields ready for play. Great guy. Prayers for your family.
