I first met Joe through Amateur Radio,and I can't express enough the sadness that I and all his radio friends are going through today because of his passing. He became a great friend after being with him at Huntsville, Dalton, and the Memphis hamfests. This is a sad time for his family and friends. I know he is in a better place now. May the Lord be with you Joe. From Benton, Ky. Nip W4NIP

The last summer family vacation we all shared in Gulf Shores, AL will always be fondly remembered. Joe leading us in early morning devotions on the beach and ALWAYS singing good Christian music are wonderful memories we still cherish after all these many years. We remember Joe as a man who was a devoted Christian, who loved God and his family dearly. Joe and Linda spent time playing with their children and their children's friends as they grew up, as well as taking them to church and church activities. Playing Uno was a favorite game I liked to watch all of them play, when we were on vacation that year at Gulf Shores. But, ALSO, Joe, along with Linda, always found time to help and encourage others. Joe will be deeply missed, by his dear family and friends, but I know Joe is now enjoying singing to his hearts' delight in Heaven, and Heaven is better because of his voice.
