I loved working with Joe, he was a hands on employer. He would chip right in with making meatballs, wedding soup, etc. He helped us in every part of our jobs. I have great memories of him, his kindness, respect and helpfulness to his employees. He was our friend. I’m very sorry for your and all of your family’s loss. Just know he was a great man whom we all loved working for. With all our sympathy, Joann Cola Harris and family.

  4. My sincere sympathy. Joe has been a great neighbor and friend and will been greatly missed. He was always ready to help! I can’t thank him enough for the many times he shoveled snow ( and I have a long driveway!) or mowed my lawn. It was always nice to see him out walking the dog( I forget his name!) at any time of day or night! They were good buddies!! Brightway won’t be as bright without Joe, that’s for sure!! May he Rest In Peace. Thoughts and prayers always. Missy Hadobas
