He volunteered with disaster response going to scenes such as New York's September 11th attacks, Hurricane Katrina Relief, and Joplin Tornado Relief. Joe took his service dogs to nursing homes and hospitals, including the VA and with him for disaster response. He was able to provide relics of the 9/11 attacks to the memorial in St. Charles City. In his younger days Joe enjoyed fishing, hunting, racing, playing softball and long Sunday drives. Joseph was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Joe's wish was to have his body donated to science; A Mass of Remembrance will be read in Joe's honor on a later date.

    I’m so sorry about Joe’s passing. We met in 1970 at a concert in Lindenwood University my girlfriend had locked her keys in the car and Joe with his friend was able to retrieve the keys with a hanger. After introducing ourselves, he asked if I was related to Cindy who happened to be my sister. We became fast friends and the memories of him sitting in my family’s kitchen engaged in conversation with my parents are still vivid in my mind he was an all around great guy he will be missed

We meet Joe because Joe was being friendly and Proverbs states “A man that has friends shows himself to be friendly” Joe, did just that he was friendly to everyone. our prayers of peace and comfort are extended to you now and in future.

    Hey Joe B.! Where has our time and life gone to so quickly? It was only last week that we were throwing a Teddy Bear across the bed at each other. We had a blast together, didn’t we Cousin! Here’s some of my favorites: Skipping Mass in 8th grade to eat breakfast at Cab Stand. / Skipping school in 8th grade and take a bus to St. Louis. / Crawfishing in the creek at Boonslick Park. / Setting off M-80’s (until the Policeman came and confiscated them). / Your Super B. / The time you blew the engine in your dad’s Fury at M.A.R. Drag racing. / Playing guitars / Sleepovers at your house / Jim sneaking us into the Drive-in in the back of his Barracuda. / Helping the Circus and Carnivals pack up to leave town. Great money for a kid. / The Ballast Pits……..There’s also Santa in the attic and the bear we dressed up to look like a kid and then threw it out the window to the horror of passing motorists but I need to stop somewhere. Joe B. you are the best cousin and friend a guy could ever have and I wish with all my heart I could have told you that one more time. I love you Buddy! You’re alive in my heart and I will always tell your stories. See you
