    He certainly was the life of a party. Many good times with him on the street and at nascar races across the USA. Will hold those memories close to our hearts. He was one unique person for sure

    I’m sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. He was my salesman for many years but did consider him a friend. We even managed to get to the drag races for some fun times.

    A great friend for 5 decades…….Joe hired me when I left Bombardier in 75 and I spent the rest of my career of over 4 decades in the Car business. For that I will always be thankful. Oh and he drove hell out of that little yellow 67 Mustang, what fun we had. He will be missed.
