Memories Timeline


  1. candleI’ll remember Joe in many positive ways-with a big smile and a great sense of humor, always great with a story. I’m very sorry for your loss.

  2. candleJoe will always have a special place in the hearts of our St. Patrick Youth Community. As a gifted coach he shared his knowledge and love of basketball, to hundreds of youth, during his almost 20 years in our program. We will miss you Joe. Thank you for the gift of you…We know Jack will carry on and continue your legacy. Our heartfelt sympathies to you, his family.

  3. The great memories of our Friendship will never fade for me, Joe,
    and I will miss you until we meet again in the highest of places.

  4. Peter and Tom, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I share the sadness of Joes passing with you. While I hadn’t seen him in almost 40 years, I still think about the great times we had when we were so young. Baseball was always a big part of our lives; your Dad was such a cool guy and he was the best coach I ever had. To Joes family, I’m confident that he was an excellent husband and father. Joe and I became close friends because he was truly a great guy, I wish I kept in touch with him over the years. Having read the tributes and shared memories, I feel like I really missed out.
