I was a very good friend of Joes. I met him just after he moved here to Endicott. We dated for a few months but decided we were better as friends and we remained that way. I grieve his loss with every1. Joe was the one person I would turn to when I needed to talk to someone, whenever I needed a shoulder to cry on he was there. I was also friends with Craig for a time, however after his mother screwed my husband and got him arrested that friendship rapidly disintegrated. At the time this happened I hadn't really pictured Craig as the type to murder any1. But over the last couple years Ive thought about things he did or said and now I'm really not surprised. I am glad that he admitted his guilt and will, God willing, spend the rest of his miserable life in jail. When Joe began working at Phils I thought it was great, seeing as Phil is my grandfather. I would see Joe every other day on his way to work, riding his orange bike and dressed for work. Now I see someone riding down the same street, dressed in clothes that look similar to Joe's work clothes and all I want to do is cry because its not him, and I can't talk to him anymore. I can't introduce him to my son that was born just months after his murder. He would have loved my son. Now all we have are just memories, memories that will last forever but will never be enough. I can't wait to see you in Heaven Joe. I Love You!

Look to all those out there that are fighting.... dont fight.... Joe would not have wanted anyone to fight, he argued alot, but it was just for fun, to prove a point.... the only point that is needed to be made on here is that Joe was a good person that we all loved and will always love!!!! that Joe will always be missed!!!! and that no matter what Joe will always be in our hearts, laughing at us when we make a stupid mistake!!!! but he is always there for us, we just have to look deep enough!!!! and Sarah, thank you for being there for my brother!!!! he may have been there for you, but I know he loved being needed.... you might have helped HIM!!!! It has taken me almost two years to realize that if I want to see Joe all I have to do is look around me, because he is there, where ever I look, as long as he is in my heart and I am loyal to his memory!!!! just close your eyes and picture him for who he was at his happiest moments.... its what he would have wanted!!!!

You have honored him here wonderfully Chelsea. He was blessed to have you as a sister and hope your family is healing from this horrible event.
I would like to ask all that knew and Joe for the person he was to do one more thing for him. In twenty years write a letter to the parole board stating that you do not think Robert Johnson Jr.(craig was the person he pretended to be) should NEVER be released from prison. Some one who would do such a horrible thing to someone like Joseph Trottier should never be allowed to live free again.

I love and miss joe so much. I cannot believe it's been 3 years. I just read through all the posts and Chels is right.. Joe would wanted all of us to remember the good times, and remember him for how he lived not how he died. He would have wanted us to raise a Corona to him on his birthday.And for all of you fighting on here, and saying that you give up cutting all out of your life.. NO ONE except craig knows what happened that night. What he did was an evil that will haunt him the rest of his years, but who knows what happened It may have been an accident and Craig paniced after... Not that it excused him and rest assured that i condem him to the blackest ring of hell for it but remember Joe. He would have told us that we weren't there, we don't know.
Remember joe, his kindness, his laugh, and lets all take a step back and ask wwjd
What WOULD JOE DO

I knew Joe from high school and from the TTLP program. He was one of the most wonderful people in the world, and i cant believe its been four years now that he's been gone. RIP Joe, you were much loved.

I don't want to stir up any trouble, but I never found out if CJ was convicted and how long he was sentenced, can someone let me know?

Yes Michelle- Craig Johnson was convicted of murder and sentanced to 20 years to life. He does not deserve to live free again and there will be a petition from the Friends of Joey when Johnson comes up for parole.

so i read all these comments about how everyone on her don't wont Craig to get out of jail an i don't think that is right.. i be leave that he should have a chance to get his life together an what ever else he needs to do. making him sit in jail for the rest of his life is not gana make n e thing better. people need to realize that Craig wont ever be able to get a job or do n e thing cause this is on his record for life not mater what so he ant gana live happy in jail or out. just let him live free after he serves his time. i under stand the pain an shit but there is no need to be selfish an i no that u all are still feeling hurt an what ever else but ima say this.. i no u all are upset that u lost Ur son an nephew but Craig is serving his time an u guys r lucky for that because i no famliys (that are my friends) that there kids were killed an the person who killed them is still out there an they haven't got justice yet till this day an its been 6 years now.. people make mistakes an this was a big mistake an if this was the other way around u all would wont Ur son to get poroal so u can spend what ever time with him. so u all might wont to reconsider what u all have said and by no means am i sticking up for n e one i am just making a statement. i really hope u all consider ur comments..

The friends of Joey met on June 1st to clean and beautify his section of the hyway and continued to collect signatures to assure that his murderer never gets out of prison. Someone vandalised Joe's sign and it was reported to the D.O.L. and the endicott police.

Craig admitted in court what happened. Every murderer in prison claims "there was more to the story". Too bad Craig i still telling stories and refusing to take responsibility for what he did. Gives us more motivation to make sure he NEVER gets out of prison. He is a danger to society
