We have lots of memories from grade school to high school. Little league baseball's homerun and broken bat legend!! Brock helped Jamie Tyler and I collect them. Going from a flat top to hair and from baggies to Levi's in jr high, Basketball, football & Prom King in high school. Joe seemed to be a natural winner at everything but always remained humble and kind, never pridefulI. I pray for your peace, comfort, strength and healing memories of Joe.

Don't have the words that can say what Joe was to me. I pretty much grew up with Joe on the baseball field. He was my best friend and the best baseball player I've ever seen throw a pitch. I'm glad I was always on his team and never had to see him as the other bench. I had the best teammate ever from 9 yr old scottys little league the pencick babe Ruth to high school titans. My friend always and for ever Joe I'm proud that I can brag that u were and always will be friends. We were unbeatable together in life u and me and I'm a better person because of ur presence in my life. I love u brother forever and ever. God bless u and the hole family because u were part of mine and I apart of yours.
