  1. Sympathies

    Aw, Joe was as good a man as ever born. Loyal to family and friends but his family was always foremost. Nita, Jessica and Laura were his pride and joy. Rest In Peace my friend. You did good. I’ll miss you.

  2. Remembering Joe

    Nita, be sure you have my deepest heartfelt sympathy for the passing of Joe.
    I have never been very good at expressing my feelings, but I must say that Joe was one of the best men
    I had the pleasure of befriending. Over the 35 years we worked together, at Hale and Trident, we had the
    opportunity to have long discussions about politics, life and our faith. What says most for Joe was his willingness
    to serve his church and his fellow man building ramps for the wheel chair bound and fish frys and spaghetti
    dinners to raise funds for the church. His life was a life well lived.

  3. We are very sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. There’s an unspoken bond and mutual respect within the fraternity of veterans. I’ll miss our talks about the VA and family gatherings won’t be the same without him. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to all of the family.

  4. Adopted Family Member

    I loved Nita and Joe the instant I met them at Anna and Bob’s house. They are warm, welcoming, caring, giving, generous people who love life and others. They welcomed me into their hearts and their beautiful home on “the lake.” I am blessed to have them in my life and consider Joe still a part of it. When we’re mourning and grieving the loss of such a man as Joe, there is little one can say to bring comfort, but for me, I do find some consolation in a scripture verse, “In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2. I am sure Joe is saying to his wonderful wife, family and friends, “Hey, wait’ll you see THIS place!” Love, prayers, condolences and gratitude to Nita, Laura, Jessie, Anna, Bob, Helen and all your families who are suffering this great loss.

    OMG – I am in shock. It seems like just yesterday that we started our company with a few ideas and meetings in Joe’s kitchen after work. That was 20 years ago. I love him as a friend. He worked for me at Hale Fire Pump company for 15 years before we started Trident Emergency Products. He was a well read veteran who enjoyed life, fun, eating and family. They broke the mold when Joe was born. We use to fish in the salt water and have caught bluefish, bonita and tuna back in the day. We will miss Joe and his great laugh. I enjoyed making him laugh because he had a great sense of humor. I still can’t believe he is not longer with us. God Bless Nita, Jessy and Laura. Cherish his memories because he was one of a kind.

  6. Friend

    Nita, Jess and Laura, Please accept my sympathy and love. I write for myself who grew up around a wonderful family on East 4th Ave. in Conshy and for my brother Michael who worked with Joe at Hale Pump. I have so many good memories of the DelBuono family and Joe is a part of them. I remember him bringing Larry and Randy home from the service. I wish I could sit with you and share the memories. Please be assured of my continued thoughts and prayers for Joe and for each of you. God Bless You and know Joe is in a place where no harm can come to him. Chotsie

  8. Friend

    I loved this man. I called him Big Joe. He was bigger than life. His arms and heart was always open to everyone. I wish so much he was still here with us and I’m so sad for Nita Laura Sean Jesse and Micheal. The last time I saw big Joe he was helping a neighbor that he loved like a brother. Big Joe will continue to live through our memories our tears and laughter and stories. I know without doubt that this big generous loving man of integrity is now in the light of the love of his almighty savior.
    Sending peace and love to Big Joes entire family. I love all of you. ❤️

  9. Nita, ever since we talked on Wednesday night, we’ve been struggling to wrap our minds around the tragic news of Joe’s passing. Impossible to believe. Impossible to process. Words fail me and the tears simply haven’t stopped, but luckily neither has the flood of treasured memories and all of the laughs… so many laughs! We wish we could be with you now. Sending hugs and our love to you, Jessie and Laura (Anna and Helen too), and our very deepest sympathies. Joe – and all of you – mean the world to us and we’re truly devastated and heartbroken by his sudden loss. Joe, we love you. Enjoy the reunion with your mother, whom you’ve spoken about so lovingly. No doubt she is thrilled to have you with her this Mother’s Day… the ultimate gift. I’m so grateful to you for your kindness, generosity, friendship and love over the years. Keep an eye on all of us while you rest in heaven’s light. We will miss you terribly and will cherish the memories. Godspeed, my friend. xoxoxo

  10. Nita So sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. He was always so sweet and my mother was so proud to be his godmother. Thinking of you and your family, Anna and Helen too. Sending love. ❤

  12. I was so saddened to hear that Joe passed. He was just the nicest man ever. Nita I am keeping you and your girls in my prayers. When I told my girls Joe passed they were so upset. Kiera said she’s gonna miss her fishing buddy and the first person who taught her how to drive a golf cart. He was truly one of a kind!

  13. the Best of Mr. Joe

    Sending our most sincere sympathies to all Of Mr. Joes family.

His big smile, positivity, and laughter will be greatly missed by all. We will forever be grateful for each and every blessed memory we have with Mr. Joe. We pray for peace and comfort for all of Joes family and friends.

We love you and will carry you in our hearts forever.May you Rest In Peace our sweet friend. The Shrader Family
