    DEAR JOE = I WILL SADLY MISS HIM.. I HAVE KNOWN JOE SINCE MY CHILDHOOD GOING BACK MORE THAN 80 YEARS! HE WAS ONE OF THE MOST HONEST MEN IN ALL OF HIS BUSINESS VENTURES DURING THE 50’S & 60″S .. HE ALWAYS HAD A SMILING DISPOSITION AND AND A WARM PERSONALITY.

    JOE IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE LAST PERSON TO LEAVE OUR JEWISH COMMUNITY IN MILWAUKEE OF HIS GENERATION.. I WAS PRIVILEGED TO BE JOE’S FRIEND.

    GOD BLESS HIM AND HIS FAMILY
