  1. I live next door to Joe for the last 10 years. From the day I moved in, he was always been a good friend and a fabulous neighbor. He would always check on me whenever I went out of town, concerned that I was Okay. Later it was me checking on him. Joe touched my heart and will forever stay there. I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad.

    My sincere condolences in the loss of your Dad, Grandfather and Brother. A special memory of Joe is when my own father was hospitalized and gravely ill. Joe showed up in emergency to help support my mother, Eva McLaughlan. His act of kindness and support was so appreciated during a difficult time and has never been forgotten. Rest In Peace Joe.
