I have missed Joe's positive presence and ready smile since he retired from Camden County College. I can still hear his laughter in my mind - it was infectious :-)

My sincere condolences to Annemarie.

Joe, you were always quick-witted; always joyous,;always an encouragement to others; always able to simplifying an object of art or a life situation; and always a burst of sunlight when you entered a room.
Joe, I will miss your charm and joie de vie... I am so glad to have known you as a friend at the Phila Museum of Art and as an usher at the various performance venues. 
May your glow shine upon us in remembrance.

Joe became not only our next door neighbor when we bought our first home on Evergreen Lane, he became a forever dear, kind, and thoughtful friend. He added a lot of fun and silliness to our days on the Lane that my family will never forget.

Your contagious smile and laugh will be greatly missed, Joe.

Joe was a real gentleman, as well as a Haddonfield Icon, he will be missed. He was always very generous with his time sharing his knowledge of Haddonfield through the many tours that he led. We were happy to have him in the Haddonfield 65 Club.

Always kind, always smiling, always a pleasure to work with - Joe was especially encouraging when I was a new guide at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and at the Rodin Museum. His warm heart and generous spirit will be missed.

I had the pleasure of meeting Joe through our Haddonfield 65 Club. I am a relatively new member to the Club, so I only knew Joe a short time, however he made a very positive impression on me as both a gentleman and a knowledgeable one at that. He will be missed.

Joe was a wonderful thoughtful man. He encouraged me to share my love for the Rodin. He supported me as I successfully trained and was approved to share Rodin with the public at Philadelphia's Rodin Museum.
Joe was so knowledgeable and willing to share his knowledge with the PMA guides and many others.
I will miss his upbeat approach to each day.

I knew Joe as s talented and enthusiastic guide at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. As a fellow guide, I enjoyed Joe’s original & entertaining comments, especially in the Modern & Contemporary Galleries. Unfailingly polite, Joe was always a gentlemen, who greeted everyone with a warm smile and sincere interest. His fellow guides at the PMA will miss him immensely.

You are greatly missed Joe. So many people are thinking of you and sharing stories and photos. It is wonderful to hear from so many people that have known you and cared about you for decades. You have left a beautiful legacy.

I share with Joe's family and friends, the sadness of his passing and smiles remembering the man he was.
