Joe was a lifetime friend and we fished, golfed and played pool together starting in our early teens. Joe and I caddied together at the Springfield Country Club as well. I have many fond memories of my time with him. My condolences to Sharon, his wonderful wife and all the rest of his family. He will be missed by all.
