I am shocked to hear the passing of my classmate, teammate and friend. It’s been many years since we’ve seen each other but I cannot look back at my high school years and not think of this good man. From our football and basketball days Joe was always there and a force to be reckoned with. From those days, to the Columbia Club, to seeing each other occasionally in the “Big City” of Mechanicville, we always enjoyed seeing and speaking to each other. Joe, you will always be with us and will be missed as much as you were loved.
