    My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of the Hunter family .
    I met Joe when I was 16 years old . That’s when I started working for Safeway . I cant help but smile, looking back at all of the good times that we had, getting into some sort of mischief. Stories by the dozens . Even when I had not seen Joe for awhile, it never seemed like we never missed a beat . Joe was liked by all ,and was special to the rest of my family as well . Intelligent and quick with a joke or two . Some of my favorite memories include Joe . Rest In Peace my good friend .

  3. Will miss Joe. We went to school together and he always had good things to say. Great sense of humor. I learned much from him.

  4. Our condolences to Joe,s family. We have many fond memories being around Joe and Pam often said he was the only cook better than her. He brought many a smoked meal to the staff at our local business and would spend time laughing telling stories and planning the upcoming Antelope hunt on Pam’s parents farm.

  5. Saddened to note the passing of a Safeway great. Joe certainly embodied the best of the supermarket employees. Not knowing all of his family except Kim & her mom Rose as customers of the Southside Pharmacy, just wanted to say how sorry that the retirement we all hope for ended too abruptly for your family. Please accept my sharing in your grief at this time.

  6. My husband John Starr worked with Joe for many years. He remembers his great sense of humor and his zest for life.
    We are so sorry to hear of his passing.
