    My forever friend, role model and mentor will be truly missed. Dr. Joe could always put a smile on my face during the toughest times in my career. He was my office neighbor for 14 years. He made all my days at MPS memorable. Michelle and Michael my condolences to each you. Your father loved both of you and his grandchildren more than words can express or more than you can ever imagine. Find comfort in knowing that he is in a better place and will only have good days from now until eternity. May God bless the family and give you the strength to endure.

    In Christ,

    Julie Landry

  16. Brian Pearce [retired Xerox Tech.] says:

    Back in the late 80″s early 90’s while I was working for Xerox, Joe was the “go to guy” for facilities purchases for Indian Prairie #204. I worked well with Joe and he made Xerox make me the service representative for the entire District because of Joe I had a much more successful career until retirement. As our live progress I always wondered about Joe sadly seeing Joe’s obit in this past Fridays Naperville Sun. My best wishes to Joe’s family in this difficult time. I always remember him and the fun times we had. Peace be with you Mr. Joe.
