  1. I knew Joe through work, and although he could be a bit ornery at times, I always knew the job would get done. Joe was honest, direct and forthright, and I’ll miss seeing him around the job site.

    My thoughts go out to Joe’s family and friends during this tough period.
    Neil

    Joe was a colleague of mine for the past 20 years but more than that he was a friend. One you could always count on to tell it like it was. Straight up no BS. But quick with a smile and always ready for whatever might come up. We solved many of the world’s problems over a cocktail in Vegas. Save us a table Joe. See you later.
    Janine our thoughts & prayers are with you

    Madeline & I were saddened to learn of Joe’s passing…all too soon in life. Joe was one of the many wonderful kids in my first elementary class in Canada. Joe and Wayne Jones took a young Aussie teacher to the local rink and taught him to skate! Thank you, Joe…we had fun, and you spread it around!

    Janine, Matt and Sam and I are so sad that Joe has passed on. The time Kerry spent with you both was very special to him and he shared those feelings with us. He said he was so privileged to know Joe, and to know you – two great people who shared an amazing bond and a wonderful life. My heart is with you. Cathy
