Talk about making a guy feel bad. Just a few months ago Joe about ran me off the road in front of Evergreen while he was on his way home. I was not happy with him. Then just recently I heard he had cancer. Then bam, he passes away. Times-Standard Online - Obituaries
This should be a lesson to those close to retirement. Joe was nearly 70 years old and still working at the Pulp Mill! He could have retired years ago! Enjoy the fruits of your labor and all that. He was a gruffly type, but an over all good guy. Good ball player and coach. He will be missed by many at the mill and in the community.
