I use to go into Joe's antique shop a lot in the late 70's and early 80's. He'd be in there with his overalls on and watching his beans he was cooking. I'll never forget his smile. Rest in peace, Joe!

We were so very sorry to learn of Uncle Joe's passing. Although we didn't get to see him often, when we did get to visit, Uncle Joe was always as kind as could be. Kurt and I loved visiting him at his Antique Store in Kenton. On one visit he gave me an old antique crock which I still proudly display in my kitchen in Texas. I know he will be missed by so many, especially his sweet wife Emma. Love and prayers to all of you during this hard time.

So very sorry to hear of Joe's passing - what an absolutely wonderful guy and such a character! We sure will miss him at Trinity - we could always count on his eager "motion to adjourn" after every congregational meeting. (I'll also miss him calling me Scooter!- Julie) You are all in our prayers for comfort and peace. Deepest sympathy - Julie and Roger
