    Condolences to friends, and family….Words can convey my feeling after hearing the news. I will always remember Joe’s smile and his support as a fellow UPer…..and the times we shared bowling and the annual Elmwood Open. We are stronger together RIP

    So very sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. I met Joe back in the early 70s when we worked together, along with his dad Ben, at TYPO, a printing company in Philadelphia. We became fast friends and I was very impressed with his demeanor. Please know I have the family in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
