Friend and family, , I've known and worked with Joe with Lion's worthy causes since I came to Punta Gorda in 2003. He was most generous and I enjoyed being engaged in projects with him because of his steady contribution. I visited Joe at May before I left home for an extended vacation, and he was in good spirits. He will be remembered with affection by all who knew him. Reggie Weiss
