Joe was a long time friend of our family and was especially close to our son Bill, and our other adult children, since they were all teenagers. He was always very respectful and (along with a couple of other friends parents) Joe called us Ma and Pa. We will miss seeing him at Mass every Sunday, and occasionally at family events. Rest easy now Joe,in HIS hands.

Joe was such a caring brother and a great uncle. He put family first. He was one of a kind. We are going to miss him so much.

~Jeanette Kaczmarek Balotin    

As one of the nieces and nephews, I have a storehouse of wonderful and crazy memories of Uncle Joe. First of which is being named after him. I appreciate and will always remember the time he spent with us. He truly loved the kids! He also set a wonderful example on how to “always” take care of your mother, sisters, and family as a whole.

~Joseph Sanders    

Unique and caring. I, for one, will miss my brother in-law dearly.

Joe was our neighbor for almost 20 years. I never knew anyone as spotless as Joe. He would hand pick his weeds from his prestigious lawn... His house was the same way... He worked hard and had pride. He was also a great neighbor... We were so sorry to hear he passed away... He asked me to take a few of his strawberry plants... I'm glad I did... He loved his family soooooooooo... I pray for you all... Rest in heaven Joe!

Dear Family:     I wanted to convey my sincere regret for your recent loss.  In the difficult days ahead I hope you will find comfort in happy memories. Revelation 21:4 says that soon 'death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry nor pain be any more'.  We have the promise of seeing our loved ones again in a world with no more suffering.   You are in my thoughts and prayers.  For more comforting information go to www.jw.org
