Sending my deepest condolences to mom and Joe's family. Joe was the most generous, kind hearted and caring person I know. I'm going to miss that big bear hugs. I'm so thankful, I get to be apart of his life. I'm going to miss you dearly. I love you.

Condolences to Joe's family. Joe was my first unit boss when I got to KI Sawyer AFB, MI. Long story short, he taught me a lot, stood up for our unit and made it a great assignment. RIP Joe! Tim Rearich
