  2. I played and watched Joe play many times. He was a gentleman who loved the game. The first time he played Cliff he was left very safe but he speared the shot and went on to win the game. Cliff smiled and went on to win in the long run. I will not forget you Joe

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting Joe when i played at Billiard Square for a couple of months back in the 60’s.

    He walked up to me one day and said, “you and me should play some”.

    We played quite a few times before i left town, 2 bucks a game. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It always came down to the rubber, and he got me every time for 2 bucks and the table time.

    I’ve never been hustled by a better gentleman. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So sorry to hear of Joe’s passing, sincere condolences to Joe’s Family and loved ones.


    Fond memories.
