    MY old baseball buddy will no longer be in any pain, but my good friend and teammate will be missed. Rest in peace Joe.!

    Joe was a classmate of mine throughout school in Logan, Iowa. We were together from first through twelfth grade. It all seems so long ago, but so close. A great many memories of days gone by at this time.
    Our thoughts and prayers to Virginia and the family. May Joe or “Snooky” as we called him rest in peace.
    All or our love.

    Joe was a great freind. He treated me, my wife, and my son like family. I met Joe at Rosenblatt in the early 90s. I became freinds with he and his wife. I enjoyed many baseball and hockey games with Joe. My son and wife also got to know him. I always appreciated it when he would call me and check in. I will miss his stories about everything from boxing to the aksarben knights hockey team. I will really miss our conversations about nebraska football. Rest in peace Joe! I know you will be watching all of us and all sports from above.
