Joey, you were a great friend to many, how fortunate for those who knew you well.
I did not know you like some, however I knew that you were always decent, respectful. civil and kind.
A happy kind spirit. God rest your soul brother.
My sincere condolences to Joe's family.

So many fond memories of Joe from my boys' racing days. He always had a smile, joke or helping hand for everyone who needed it. My boys will always remember the magic show he did for them at Silver Lake. He will be sadly missed.
Chris and Tyler, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Praying peace for you at this difficult time.
