I have such fond memories of Joe . Every time I’d see he and Elaine I’d get my hug from my gentle giant Joe. I remember riding with them to our lake cottage in Michigan. All I know is when they came to the lakes there was lots of laughs and shenanigans going on. I owe Joe and Elaine so much for always being positive role models for me. Elaine and Cheryl I am so sorry for this tremendous loss . What a blessing he was to so many.

Joe and Elaine were great and helpful neighbors for the entirety of the time residing next to us on Briar Road. The Cox family will miss him.
