  15. Known Joe to be a hardworking man. Did alot for all of his sisters and brother Rudy. Showed all of them right from wrong. That carried over to his two sons and daughter. Always administered nothing but love to all of them. Joe didn’t even seem like a nephew to me. Instead, I thought of Joe just as a very, very close family member. All immediate family members knew and called Joe as “Pepe” growing up. Nothing but fond memories of Joe. Sleep well, Joe, and may God Bless all who are left behind.
