I think of JOE often, of all the GOOD times we had together. I had not since him in 30 years, sadly we had lost touch. We worked together at AIRTITE on Western Ave. Today was the 1st time I sat down and tried to search for him on the internet and sadly found his Passing. My Deepest Sympathy to Michael and Family.

Even though we lost touch through the years; those years we knew together, living right down the block from one another , high school and JC, the Theatre Group and all those late nights on the North Side will never be forgotten. Joey was a best friend then, a pal , and a confident (one of us was Bea Arthur !) I looked for you, but couldn't find you...maybe later. Loved you then, my you yet. My condolences to Michael and the family.

To the family and friends of our friend, Joe: The sad news came today and it hasn't sunk in yet. My heart swells as the memories roll on. Joe was a real pal on a lot of levels and on many occasions. Our condolences go to you, the family and friends who were the lucky ones to know and love him more closely. His laugh and his energy will endure for a long time to come. Long live Joe!
