Rose, Marcia and I are so sorry to learn of Joe’s passing. It’s been quite a few years since we shared time with you both. It would have been when I worked with Joe at Rockwell. We always enjoyed our time together. Thought of you both on occasion most recently while driving near your area a few weeks ago and wondered how you were doing. Joe was a great mentor and taught me a lot about managing people and projects. He had a unique sense of humor and I’m sure at times I tested his patience to the limit. But he was determined and never gave up on me or anyone else. We always knew we could count on Joe. He’ll never be forgotten. Our deepest sympathy Rose. We’ll keep you in our prayers.

    Thank you for your kind remarks about Joe. I remember both of you. Joe often spoke of his Rockwell experiences. It was really sad when the division closed and we lost touch with each other. Joe did have some physical problems after his stroke several years ago. However, his death was still sudden. I hope both of you are well.
