    As all of you know, I loved Joe and everything about him – his quick wit, his teasing, his smile, that dimple! Even his peeled tomatoes!! But most of all, his love for all of you! His was just one of the best! Until we can meet again, I will miss Joe.

    Oh Lucy I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I had the pleasure of meeting him as you know driving the bus.

    Lucy and family, Words cannot express my sadness may the comfort of God help you through this difficult time. I think the hardest part of losing someone isn’t having to say goodbye, but rather learning to live without them. Joe was a quite and humble man and a beautiful soul is never forgotten. God bless you.

    It was a sad surprise to hear about Joe. There are so many great memories I have of the Wang days. He hired me in 1981 at the Springfield office. He was great to work for and work with. Always positive and a great infectious laugh. Times were never boring with him and Al Bissett. Good to keep our friendship with him and you through the years. Great, great person!!!
