    I worked with Joe for a number of years. He was a good colleague and dedicated to his company. Joe also had a witty sense of humor. I recall the moments when he would offer advice about family or life in general. That is and will be what I remember most of all. Rest in peace Joe. And thank you.

    I will remember Joe as a valued mentor and friend during my years at CCC. He could easily catch you off guard with his dry humor which usually resulted in some hearty belly laughs. I’m sorry to hear of his passing, but know that he is resting in the arms of Our Lord. Sympathies

    I had the pleasure to work with Joe and to continue a relationship with him after CCC. He taught me the coal business and was of key team players. Joe was always willing to help others and care about the issues of others. We are all better because we knew Joe. RIP

    I too had the pleasure of working with Joe. His sense of humor kept me laughing on many days. His “disorganized” office was amazing because he knew where every piece of paper was which totally amazed me. I am sorry to hear of his passing and may he rest in peace with the Lord. Sympathies and prayers to the family
