    We are so very heartbroken to hear of joe’s passing. We have known him for such a long time. We first met him when he was Bartending at the VfW in watertown. We always loved his stories and he always talked about his amazing family. He was always our favorite at the VfW. We love you joe and you will always have a very special place in our hearts. Thank you for such wonderful memories. Rest in peace our forever friend. Sending hugs and prayers to your family. Xoxo
