    Joe was a special kind of person. I worked with him at Amana and he’s cut many a slice of country ham for my Mother. My Mother loved Joe. I know he will be missed by many. God bless!

    Joe was a great friend who helped us immensely when we arrived here. He taught me how to correctly cut a ham, how to cook a ham, helped in our store at Christmas, and was just a blessing to us when we needed it most.

    His friendship will be sorely missed.
