We all know how extensive, interesting and unique our family tree has blossomed into. That being said, whether parents, children, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, friends or neighbors… we all had the pleasure of spending quality time with Joe. He never let one of us leave his presence without a 2-minute "Joe Hug" and a sincere "I love you."
We were all blessed by those gestures, his loyalty and his ability to forgive… all rare qualities in the world today. Although we will all miss him dearly, he is finally out of pain and resting in peace with his parents, friends and family. We love you Joe, thank you for making us who we are today. We love you too… big hugs!
Funeral services will be private. Arrangements are in the care of Rice Funeral Home, 300 Park Ave.
