I worked with Joe at NRMC and found him to be a quiet humble man. He was always friendly and helpful. I was so sorry when he developed his illness but he continued in his same quiet, humble way, never using his condition as an excuse. I am so sorry for your loss of this man, husband, father, grandfather, brother. I feel blessed that I was given the priviledge to know this wonderful man.

To the family of Joe. My wife and I are sorry for your loss. I worked with Joe many years at O'Sullivan and I respected him for what he accomplished. He always treated everyone with the same respect.

I worked for Joe for ten years at the O,I remember he was always tolerant and good to his employees, quite often when we didn't deserve his tolerance. My heart and prayers go out to the family. He was a good man, boss, and friend, and will be missed . Tim Birch
