  5. Words cannot express our feelings for Joe and his family. He was a fantastic person a friend a mentor and like another brother to me. He will never be forgotten. May God Bless Carol, Lisa and Tommy and their families at this difficult time.

  6. I enjoyed all our time working together back in the ‘90’s with Vantage and Hitachi, all the way until 2018 with Tom and the SSI gang. That morphed into many golf games from Vegas to New Jersey. Joe had a heart of gold and shared his happy demeanor everywhere he went. That big smile was contagious! 🙏
