I WAS A STUDENT ANT WAVERLY AVENUE ELEMENTARY WHEN I WAS A CHILD... IM NOW 23 WITH A CHILD OF MY OWN. MR.JOE WAS THE KINDEST, SWEETEST MAN IT THE WORLD. I REMEMBER ONE DAY... THIS KID HAD NO MONEY AND FORGOT HIS LUNCH AT HOME, MR. JOE SAW HIM SITTING THERE NOT EATING BUT TALKING TO THE OTHER KIDS AND HE WENT OVER TO HIM AND GAVE HIM 5 DOLLARS TO BUY LUNCH. HE USED TO BRING IN ALL KINDS OF GOODIES FOR US EVERY FRIDAY AND AROUND HOLIDAYS HE WAS EXTRA GENEROUS. THE DEATH OF MR. JOE REALLY SHOCKED ME. HE LIVES ABOUT 2 MINUTES FROM MY HOUSE AND I USED TO SEE HIM DRIVING HIS BIG GRAY PICKUP TRUCK EVERYWHERE. I THINK HES HAD THAT TRUCK FOREVER. HE WILL BE TRULY MISSED NOT ONLY BY ME BUT THE ENTIRE SACHEM COMMUNITY! THIS IS IN LOVING MEMORY TO MR. JOE. SLEEP PEACEFULLY!

My kids were very fond of Mr. Joe and said he will be deeply missed in the Sachem District. They said he was always very pleasant and kind. Rest in peace.

im a student at Sequoya middle school. i was shocked when i found out about Mr. Joe's passing. He was the man who could cheer you up right after you got a bad grade in math. he not only went out of his way to make sure the school was clean, but also went out of his way to make sure the students and the teachers were always happy. i hope he rests in pease.
