    Jo was a special, jovial and easy going gentleman, known for that by myself and many others. Got to know him by belonging to the same antique car club. I will always remember his smiIe and will miss him. RIP Jo.

    I did not know my Uncle Joe very well as we only met at family reunions and other events. He was always happy and willing to share about his cars and motor scooters. I am praying for Marilyn, Todd and family.
