Joe's passion was farming and how he loved to drive the tractors. His first experience was when he would help my Dad on the farm in his early years. He found pleasure in growing a garden. I had from time to time had samples of his canned veggies and when talking to him trade recipes. He said Mamo Bangle's homemade dressing was the best. His Mom, my sister, Betty would sing to him and grandson, Little Joe "You are my sunshine" To Joe's family our sincere sympathy and will truly miss him. Love Aunt Connie, Uncle Roger, Kristy & Jeff.
