My prayers and condolences go out to all in Joe's family. A great worker who was always there and was always willing to do what was needed to get the job done. One of the many great workers at RI Tool. He had a great work ethic and a very pleasant disposition. May God hold you in the palm of his hand bless you and keep you. God speed Joe you did it right heaven gained a good one.
