Memories Timeline


  1. Katie
    Thank you for bringing Joe into our family. He was a wonderfully decent man, truly a joy to always be around. Our long weekend here in Tucson was truly all too short. The memories are forever. Joe had a real gift which was to make those around him feel happy and welcome. It was always apparent that the two of you were indeed soulmates,
    This is the legacy of a life well lived
    Our hearts go out to you and his entire family. 💕🌵🌹

  2. Joe was one of the good guys.  As his brother-in-law, I knew him for over 40 years.  Joe had a unique, quirky, good-natured sense of humor.  He was amiable, friendly, and felt no malice toward anyone.  

    Unfortunately, he suffered more than his share of health issues in later years, but he is blessed with Katie, his guardian angel.  

    Thomas Campbell once said…”To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.”  In that sense, Joe is still with us…but we still are going to miss you, Buddy!!!

  3. Katie, I am so sorry for your loss. I have missed both your smiling faces at the YMCA for quite some time now. Maybe you can come back and let us be here for you. Love, Cheri Ward

  4. So sad to lose my uncle Joe. Heaven has recieved one of the greats. So many memorys which always involve his unique sense of humor. He will truly be missed.

  5. Uncle Joe was the first member of Mark’s extended family that I met and it was not until months later that we realized it. It was Christmas day and we were all introducing ourselves. Uncle Joe said he worked at the DMV so we all started sharing stories and showing our bad pictures. Haha! Turns out Uncle Joe took mine! And we both remembered it! ❤️ We were meant to be family! He will always hold a special place in my heart!

  6. Katie and family – Crisanta and I met you and Joe in Aurora when we lived a few houses from you at Pier Point 7 Village 1 in Aurora, Colorado. You were great neighbors. Then Joe told me one day that you were leaving for Pueblo West, and he was going to work for the State Drivers License Bureau in Colorado Springs. Well, a few years later we were able to leave the Denver area to retire back here to Pueblo. When we needed to change our address on our drivers license it was Joe at the Pueblo State Drivers License Bureau who helped us out. For the entire time we knew Joe and Katie, they were always smiling and great to be around. We will miss Joe, and we wish the best for you Katie and family. God bless. Bill and Crisanta Goldsberry.

  7. Katie, we are very sorry to learn about your loss. May you be comforted by your memories of Joe. Mel and Mirna Richards

  8. Memories we have to last a life time. So glad you were my brother and brought Katie into our family. I know you are watching over us and having great conversations with God, our Father. Peace be with you and pray for us that are still on earth and waiting 😇

  9. My heart is broken for you Katie. The thought of not seeing Joe at the Cathedral is going to leave a huge hole in my heart, many hearts…he will be missed.
    My love to you and your family and may God grant you peace in this most difficult time.
    I love you very much.

  10. We are shocked and saddened by your loss Katie, a loss of a dear friend and great guy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Katie, and we are here for you. Please let us know about anything you need.
    Love, Susie and Pete Juba and Marie Oreskey.
