The CAPTAIN was a family friend for over 25 years. He started out as a fun neighbor and remained a dear friend and surrogate "dad" and "grandfather" to me and my children. We shared MANY talks around the table, many hugs, a lot of laughter and LOVE. I'll truly miss this remarkable man, forever a part of my heart. Wish I had known sooner, would have loved to pay respects at the services. Joe, sweetie, I hope heaven shares some great jazz and crab fests with your sweet soul! We love you!

I'm so sorry I just found out about Capt. Joe's passing and I am truly sorry for your loss. I had the privilege to know this great man. He was so much fun to be around--always happy and up-lifting. He would make you laugh when times were rough. I will miss him.

Peace and Blessings Family. We will miss cousin Joe's laughter and kindness. We will miss the times we spent going to Tanners, VA for homecoming at Mt. Pisgah B.C.

Earth hath sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

I met "The Captain" at the Metro 29 Diner many years ago. He was always there with many of us enjoying breakfast at the counter and reading his NY Post. Joe was the most fashionable dresser we knew! He was so proud of his
work and took an interest in the life of each of us who knew
him these many, many years. Joe's church was paramount in his life. He adored his family. And, he loved Jazz music.
Truly,

My wife, Joanne, and I have been a part of the team of people who come to Manor Care each Thursday evening to lead a Bible study. For several years now, we have had the privilege of having Joe join us for the Bible study. We always looked forward to seeing Joe and talking with Him about the greatness of our God! We are blessed to have known Him! While he will be sorely missed, and our Bible study won't
