Hi June; MY condolences to you and your family of the passing of Joe. He was always keeping us laughing through some of the tough days in the office once he got his promo. “off the road” to a nice cushy office of his own at HCO. Then he would tease us all that now we had to starting calling him “Mr. Scalzo” from now on, but we did not listen!
His was a good family man and always talking about his children too.

Take care of yourself, June
and JP, rest in peace.

June, Amanda & all,

We were so sad to hear about Joe’s death. Please accept our sincere sympathy during this difficult time.

He was a wonderful man and we have happy memories of a great neighbor. He was always so friendly and never missed the opportunity to help if we needed anything, like when one of the dogs got loose, or anytime we needed help. Megan was at your house so much and he was always so nice to her, that was just the kind of man he was always upbeat and happy.

May your happy memories of him and the love he always gave be a source of strength and a comfort to you all now. May God bless you with the courage you need to go on. We are so sorry.

Love, Rita, Gary, Kristel & Megan

Love, Susan and Dave
