  1. We are so sorry for your loss. Joe was a soft spoken gentleman, and a wonderful neighbor. We miss him and know you will too. With sincere sympathy. Toby & Carol Ward

  2. We are very sorry for your loss. We knew Joe and Jane when they attended St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church. While we lost contact with Joe, he remained in our thoughts and prayers.
    Charlie and Alma Hobbs

  3. We knew Joe and Jane while they were members of St Patricks. Joe was in our homegroup for a while. He will always be remembered for his friendship and kindness. We also truely appreciated his WWII service and enjoyed going to PDK airport with him to see a restored B-24 that was on display. Joe has been in our prayers and will be missed.

  4. I just learned of Joe’s death, and feel both sadness for his loss and great joy that he is now with his beloved Jane. I knew Joe from St. Patrick’s, and remember him as a gifted artist. He painted for at least one “Stations of the Cross” project at St. Patrick’s, and his “Station” was interesting and original. His portrait of Jane, painted after her death, revealed her spirit. He showed me drawings that he made of children who were hospitalized at Scottish Rite — I felt that the kids might jump off the page! May his dear soul bask in perpetual light.
