To the Family and Friends, My thanks to Joe for being a special person in my life. I was fortunate to have him play a big role in my Elementary, High School and beyond College years. His generosity, enthusiasm for a robust life and all around great times will be with me forever. Boy we had some fun together. I pray we will all meet again someday.

I was always the little girl whom Joe and Frank's friends gave the quarter to take a powder; but I remember his warmth and love for my family. He was a soft shoulder when we lost Beckey, and the wonderful things his family did for us and many came from his heart as well. I am truly blessed to have known Joe and his special family. My heart goes out to his wife and Nan and Patti, Scott and Jeffry. God bless you and keep you Joe. Give a hug to Clyde and Pat for us.

I've known Joe since high school. He was a friend of my husband's and many good times were spent skiing at Snow Basin and then going to the Hermitage. I also worked at Utah Tailoring Mills for his Dad and Mr. Bingham in the '60's. I still have my lifetime membership card toThe Club in Park City, which was unique for its time. I haven't seen Joe in years, but writing this has brought back many fun memories. He was one of a kind and a truly kind and generous guy. I am sad to know he is no longer with us. Please accept my condolences to his family. Sincerely, Carol Russell

I worked for Joe in 1979 for a couple of years at the Club. He was kind enough to give me a job when I had no experience in bartending...back when you had to buy "setups" and I worked at first downstairs and then upstairs in Park City. He was always so kind and generous and sorry to see that he has passed away.

We are very sorry for your loss, as Joe was really the sparkle of OHS, and I am sure many many people he knew. Just hope everyone can always remember him how we knew him at OHS.

Joe was a very good friend in high school. We were a group of about 7-8 guys that did everything together. We dragged Washington Blvd on a regular basis, drove our parents cars to Joe's house every Saturday morning to wash them and then would troll for girls. We also spent a lot of time at Joe's trading clothes. Mostly however, we were on the receiving end of Joe's "hand me downs". Since Joe was the best looking of the bunch, he seemed to have the most girl friends too! I regret not keeping in touch with Joe after high school but that seems to be the norm with good friends; everyone seems to go their own way following high school. I'm sorry I will be unable to attend Joe's graveside service but am in California through the end of February. Our condolences to the family. Ric and Claudia Hammond
