    Mark—we are so sorry for the loss of your father. . Remember the good times. We are certain there were many, and we hope they will carry you and your family through this difficult time. Your friends, Randy and Laura Stevenson.

    My father retired from Falstaff in 1976 I first met Joe when I went to pick up my father at work after using his car for the day. Joe was a young energetic kid and me and my father use to fix things at his house when the need arose. I am sorry for your loss.

    Your family doesn’t know me but my mom resides in the assisted living facility where Joe and Bunnie live. Joe was one of my favorite residents to see (though I didn’t see him much lately). He seemed like a very sweet guy. Prayers for Bunnie and your family.

    Joe was a stand up guy, Always a handshake and a smile. He surely will be missed but not soon forgotten. I spent many an evening sharing stories and having a beer or two. Oh and the Nebraska games and New Year’s Eve at Old Settlers. Joe, Bunny and the children are upstanding great friendly people. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time of loss. Rest in Pease my friend!!!

Please give your Mother a hug and kiss for me. Now he is with my Mom and Dad and Grandparents. He was a sweet and gentle man and always looked out for his neighbors around him.
