I met Joe a few years ago when he attended music nights at the hall in Pembroke, NS. He surely loved music and was a good performer. Joe also had a quick, comical response to any comment others through his way but also had a serious side. Sincere condolences to all his family.

Dad was quite the character. Always funny and trying to get a laugh out of us as a kid. I remember him saying he wanted to have a Pepsi in one hand a deck of
cards in the other when he was laid to rest. He will be missed.
