  3. I am so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. Joe and I shared a class room from 1st Grade through 12th Grade. He was always such a nice person in school and I liked him. Peace be with you.

  4. I attended school with Joe at Goodwin and Canyon. He was very likeable and had a great smile. My father often spoke of the enthusiasm and skill both Joe and Nic had on the basketball court and how they contributed so much to their teams.
