    To the Joe Croci Family we are so very sorry for your loss. He will be in out prayer’s, as well as all of you.

    I knew Joe very well back in the days when he was the Test Center Foreman in Franklin, and I was the
    Foreman at CAB back in 1975. Great guy, Great Family man, and Great Telephone man. He will be missed
    by all that knew him.
