Someone as special as " Joe " will never be forgotten. He will remain in our memories and heart forever. I / We will always cherish the beautiful memories of him. He will be greatly missed but his warmth, kindness, and gentle spirit will be remembered forever. My life has been enriched since meeting Joe, when I first started in the practice of law. I have so many memories of our chats and the laughter we shared. His gentle spirit and warm personality was a beacon to all.

My condolences to Joe's family and friends. A great person to say the least and while he operated Greco's Pizzeria in the early 1980's he was gracious enough to sponsor our softball team. RIP Joe and thank you.
