  1. By Mickey Moore

    My deepest condolences to the family of Joe. I had the pleasure of assisting him when he was the coach of the Flyers in the Dixie Youth League in 1982. We had the distinction that year of having the only undefeated season on record 18 – 0. To the best of my knowledge, that record still stands. Joe made many contributions to the community over his life but especially loved working with young people. May God grant each of you peace and comfort in your great loss.

  2. So very sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. Have known Joe for many years and enjoyed talking to him and his sense of humor. I know you, the family, will miss him and may God give you the peace you need. My sincere condolence to you all.

  3. Sincere Sympathy

    Have known Joe and his family for a very long time. A wonderful family. So sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. Our sincere sympathy in your loss. May God be with each of you in the months ahead without him. Lots of love from our home to yours.
