Joe went home to be with the Lord. He was a strong faith-filled Christian. We originally met him as customers I think in 2007. We only had the privilage of really getting to know Joe a few short years ago. My Husband Terry and I took our computer to his home, found him quite ill after having neck surgery. Hardly a day or 2 went by that we didn't talk to each other. He invited us to his Thursday night Bible Study which we still enjoy. He invited our grown Kids and Grandkids over to swim in the pool. He and our friend Debbie came to some of our family get-togethers. He took our 12 year old Grandson to the Drag Races for the first time... he will never forget the experience and cried when he found out he lost his "Uncle" Joe. He was an awesome friend and he will be greatly missed by our whole family. Terry and Pattie
