Just hearing about my Dad’s (Jimmy) cousin Joel. Special memories of my Rochester then Florida family. So sorry to hear about his passing. Saw him a few years ago & he stayed with us for a visit. He was always so kind & loving to me. I will cherish his correspondence that always started with “Cara Stefania…” Love you Uncle Joel

I'm Joel's nephew Tom, Joels sister Loretta's eldest son. I have very fond memories of my Uncle Joel and his wife Kay as a youngster growing up in Rochester. I will always remember Joel's warm genuine smile and laugh. He will always hold a special place in my memory. My wife Nicki also would like to say that her fondest memory of Joel is when he made positive comments about her hair! He made her feel very welcome as part of the family. Our most sincere condolences to the entire family! Tom & Nicki.
