    I have know Joe since 1968 when my family and I moved to Olathe. I will always remember a very smart, funny man who always took the time to talk to me. He and Yvonne were very close friends to my parents and always made our family smile because of their genuine gracious friendliness. Joe, you’ve left a lot of positive influences on me because you were ALWAYS so friendly. You’ll be in my heart and greatly missed forever.
