May he rest peace..
My heart goes out to Joe’s family during this difficult time. We were classmates in Marshall and also neighbors when we were kids growing up in Squiggsville. I was lucky to have been able to visit with Joe again at our last couple of 1975 class reunions. He was so proud of his family. My deepest sympathies.
Joe read three newspapers every day, took piano lessons at age 31, and never stopped learning. He was still running four times a week. Psalm 1Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the [a]ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he [b]meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the [c]rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
So sorry to learn belatedly of Joe’s passing but I knew him at the Milwaukee Post Office over 22 years ago and how devoted he was to his family and providing for them. Sorry to see a fellow conservative pass too soon but I know he was fierce in his faith. Glad to see how much he was enjoying life with his wife, children, and grandchildren. My belated sympathies to Debbie and their entire family.
