  • Joe’s family,
    I just heard that Joe passed away. I am so sorry to hear this. Joe was my neighbor growing up in Barnesboro. He and Jack Muir were the two people that got me interested in joining the fire department and I have stayed active for 47 years. Joe was an officer there and one of the reasons that the department flourished like it did. He spent countless hours at the fire station working on projects to benefit the department.
    Joe was a great neighbor always willing to help out with anything going on in the neighborhood.
    Please accept my sympathy.

  • Dear Family,
    Please accept our most sincere sympathy.
    We were very good friends of Joe’s. We were from Barnesboro. Jim was an active member of the Fire Co. when Joe was.
    Joe & his mom used to spend the holidays with us.
    Joe was also in our wedding.
    Jim and I would love to go to Joe’s funeral, but we noticed it was for family only.
    We really feel bad about Joe. Love, Anne and Jim Montgomery
