What a good guy. I lived with Joe at UK for almost 3 years. So many fun times and we didn't let classes get in the way. I worked as a house boy at the DZ house, met the future Mrs. Lisa Marie Cartwright and made an intro. She just a perfect fit for Joe. Over the years we sent each other Christmas cards and talked infrequently but when we did he always had his same laugh even when he wasn't feeling well. Man, I'm going to miss him.

 Such a good fun person. Joe was a good friend in high school. We spent so many days golfing at the best golf courses in town,..Cedar Knoll or Twin Valley.  We lived to golf. After getting our driver's licenses we sometimes would skip school and golf at Carter Caves where no one knew us.  Turned a few carts over too. I think a few Little Kings might have been involved. I remember John Elam, George Rozman, Joey Cartwirght and myself getting pumped up before Friday night football games. Then afterwards heading to Huntington for the Cue. We made some good memories. He will be missed.

Wow! This is a surprise! I had lost tuch once I moved to South Carolina. Joe and I shared a couple apartments together prior to his marriage with Lisa.

Joe, Terry Pruitt and I spent  a lot of time together as the "PBRGs" - as with many others, this was related to drinking and the particular beer we drank.

I'm sorry to hear of this loss, Joe was always a good friend.
