    Have known Joe for a long time. Worked with him at the Union Pacific and also the Offutt AFB Commissary. He was a very conscientious and hard worker. What a privilege to have been around him. With much sadness……

    My sympathy to Joe’s family, was so sorry to hear of his passing. I was fortunate to meet this wonderful man and his family when he came back to our small rural school alumni a year ago. It was Joe’s 1946 class that was honored. We just had this years last night and announced the passing of Joe—so many Atlanta expressed their regret and send their condolences too. Rest in Peace Joe, you were a wonderful part of our Atlanta heritage.
