The world lost a true gem of a person when we lost Joe. He was without a doubt one of the most forgiving and compassionate people I have ever had the pleasure to call a friend. Thoughts and hugs are with his family and wife whom he loved beyond words!

In college Joey once talked about how big Greek life was there but he wasn’t involved. For his birthday I made him sweats with his name printed using Greek letters (some of the upside down). He loved wearing them because he would get the weirdest looks from everyone trying to figure what chapter or house he was really in!

Joey helped me get the dashboard lights functioning on my mustang when I was in high school. We had a great time working on it and I appreciated his hosting me, first in the garage and then for dinner! Don’t worry Joey, I’ll keep “your” mustang running smooth.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have such fond memories of time spent with Joey during high school. Especially time spent in the marching band under the direction of his Dad, Mr. A. He was the source of lots of laughter! I am so thankful for having been able to reconnect with him some in recent years. He will certainly be missed. Keeping Joey and his family in my prayers. Keith T. Bolin MHS '84

So sorry to learn of Joey’s passing. I played music with him in the Madison jazz project. His Dad was my music instructor during the 1960’s. All great memories.

May God grant Joey's soul peace. Joey's father was my colleague; Joey and Kathy were students of mine--a great family.
