I had the pleasure of working with Joe at the Chestnut Hill P.O. for many years. Endlessly talked music. Joe was truly a Renaissance man. He will be missed.

My Uncle Sonny was special to me, not only as a child but as I grew I always loved and respected him for who is was and being the ultimate optimist. He was my mothers baby brother and my Godfather. They are all at rest now Grandpa, Grandma, Peter, Theresa, Nick, Olympia, George, Elvira, and now Joseph(Sonny). Rest in peace until we all meet again.
