"Every time my husband and I watch the Patriots play football, I envision us sitting on the Walton's FL sofa and talking with Joe and Betty while the game was on. We miss our dear NE buddy, who was as sharp as a tank right up until he went to heaven."

"Joe and I were work colleagues in the late 60's at Quincy Shipbuilding Division of General Dynamics along with Larry Frazier and Dave Murphy. Joe helped me a great deal when we were in Inventory Control.  He was a fine intelligent, friendly man to everyone who needed help.  I live in Port Charlotte, FL, the town next to Punta Gorda.  If I had only known Joe lived 'next door' we could have had some good times swapping tales about our time in Quincy.  My heart and prayers go out to his family at this time.  I'm sure he will be missed a great deal."

"Bill and I were fortunate to know Joe for many years.  He was one of the
nicest people we met in all our years in Easton. He will be sadly missed.
Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you."

"Well where to start. Epic corn on the cob eating battles between Joe and I, usually after a couple lobsters. .The inssesant whistling that he passed down to his son. Joe belting out his favorite hymn. "And he will raise us up on eagles wings..."  Cruising in the boat. Puttering around the cottage always keeping busy.  The comment "well somebody has to work" as Joey , kids and I left Plymouth on a Sunday night.  Always appreciative of a meal I cooked , usually especially because I knew he liked it. Very attentive and engaging with our children. Always praising us for how great they are.  The fact that no one will ever eat the amount of chicken and rice or Betty's american chow suey that Joe A managed to get down.  (down right freaky) He was a class act. The best father-in-law a gal could ask for, I miss him but know he's at peace, and that gives me comfort. Xo"

"When I was younger a long time ago grammy would buy these blueberry muffins that me and grampy both LOVED so I would always hide a few on the top of the fridge just for us and later when we were by ourselves in the living room I'd sneek them out and we'd eat them together and he would tell me stories... thats how I choose to remember my grampa; one of the greatest people I'll ever meet

thankyou for giving me these memories I love you!"

"Remembered Joy

"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all...
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life's been full, I've savoured much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief—
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow."

Love you Grampy, thank you for everything did and were.

"I was lucky enough to meet Joe through my parents. His twinkling eyes always led me to think there was a joke or a story coming in the next minute. I'm glad he led such a full life and meant so much to so many, including me."

This tribute was added by Dan Scotti on 11th September 2016

"A man always ready with a broad, warm and infectious smile. A man passionate in support of family and friends. A man blessed with a marvelous sense of humor. Joe was all of these things and so much more. Joe absolutely made the world a better place. He is to be missed greatly...Marge & Dan Scotti"

"Bruce and I were so happy to have known Joe.  We remember coming to  their beach house in Plymouth, going out on the pontoon boat, and just getting to know Joe and Betty. You could tell that this was a wonderful love story between them.  We will remember him always."
