  2. Dear Lisa and Family,
    So sorry to get the message about Joe, he was truly my favorite of all the people I ever met at TNM&O! He always went the extra mile for us new guys and was always the same every day that you ran into him. I was so glad I got to visit with him a week ago on the phone. I will miss him alot!
    God Bless you all!

  3. Lisa, Erin, Sammi, Autumn, Linda, Dianne, Annette, Patty, Larry, Mike, Dennis & Tom:
    Jackie and I are so sorry for your loss. Although we cannot attend the memorial service please be assured that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Chuck & Jackie Fosselman & Family

  4. Annette, Dan and family. I am sorry to read about your brother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Miss seeing you both around the Waterloo area! Marie & Tyler Thomas (Thank you for your kind words when Craig went to Heaven!!)

  5. I was so sorry to learn of Joe’s death in the Waterloo Courier. He grew up on Conger Street in Waterloo, and my family lived across the street from the Haleys for many years. I was Teresa Lenius and the Haleys and the Lenius’ shared many good times together. So sorry for your loss, Joe was a good guy even way back then.

  6. My deepest sympathy for the loss of not only a customer, but a friend. May Joe rest in peace with the Lord. God Bless.

  7. I was terribly saddened to hear about the loss of Joe. We do not get enough of his kind in life.
    We ran around together w/ Rich Blackstock for years as teenagers. He lived a couple blocks down from us. It surprised me at first to read his medal count but thinking about it he was always a selfless, brave, caring person.
    Please accept my sincere condolences and tell all his family he was a great man.
    Dave
