My dad was the best person I've ever met. He was my best friend. I'd do anything to have him still here. he always told me "One day at a time". It's really tough not being able to talk to him. I think about him everyday. I love you so much dad.

Joe livened up every family get-together thanks to his outstanding wit, sense of humor and story-telling. He also raised two sons he can be very proud of in Mitchell and Christian. Sadly, he is gone too soon, but special memories of him will last forever. RIP, Joe.

Joe was our good neighbor here in Cocoa Beach for many years and is sorely missed by his many friends here since he and his beloved Lion moved. His family is in my prayers, may he rest in peace with his savior.
