    My favorite uncle. Played with me when I was little and took me to the farm to see his horse and to the coops of his racing pigeons. Moved out to the country which instilled the desire in me too. Our children played together and we spent every major holiday at family get togethers. John and Karen, I know you will miss your dad dearly as will I but we will always have our memories. Missing your father will be sad but he had a great life and you were fortunate to have him this long. I love you, Uncle Joe, John and Karen.

    Karen and John. So sorry to hear your dad passed. He lived a long and busy life. He told me many stories over the past few months when I visited him. He’s with your mom now. Best Karla and Ed and Kids
