We are lucky enough to have some old home movies of "The Club" at their many gatherings. What a joy to watch them! This group of seven couples, friends for over 65 years, got together at least once a month to have fun. There were costume and Christmas parties, picnics, dances, dinners, family weddings, christenings, and birthdays. As a child, I was amazed at their playfulness and solidarity. They've left us wonderful memories. What struck me most about "Uncle" Joe was his deep, gravely, sincere voice and his broad smile.
I send my condolences to the family with love, Carl and Gloria's daughter, Rosalie
Dear Aunt Pam, and Bobby, Mark, and Donna,
I was very sad to hear of the passing of “Uncle” Joe, (as we called him.) He and Aunt Pam have been very special people to me, as I was so fortunate to have them as my godparents when I was growing up. Both Pam and Joe were role models for me. I looked up to them as supportive, wise, generous, and cheerful adults, who did good in the world while also enjoying life, and I hoped I could grow up to be like them. I will miss Uncle Joe’s presence in the world, but I know the world is a better place because of him and Pam.
I wish you peace and fond memories,
Ann (Pasquale) Edie
Condolences to Joe's family .... he was an excellent department manager for many years at the Naval Air Propusion Center in Trenton, NJ, and a fine gentleman ... we graduated from NCE on the same night in 1962, Joe with a Masters degree and me with a Bachelors degree, and then I eventually worked in his department at NAPC .... RIP Joe
