  1. Cindy Matthews

    My deepest sympathy for your family. I had the opportunity to work with Joe at KCI last year and he was one of the nicest co-workers I have ever met. He immediately welcomed me, helped me and pitched in on our project. He was a true pleasure to work with and will be missed by many. Please take comfort in the fact that people like me, who may have only briefly met Joe, were touched by his kindness and will never forget him.

  2. Donnie Pritt

    Deepest condolences. I worked with Joe at Progress Energy. He was always very kind, would do anything he could to help a friend, and always had a smile on his face. He spoke of his son often with love and pride. Sending prayers for peace. God Bless.

  3. Bryan Rogers
