    A fine gentleman, I don't think Joe ever met anyone he didn't like! Always remembered you, and always spoke and offered a handshake!

    Lynn,

    Sorry to hear about Joe he was one of the first locals we got to know during our first visit in 98, wonderful man full of wonderful conversation.

    I will never forget just before shoot-off at the 2001 Iowa State he called me over and told me he had something for me, he reached into his right hip pocket and pulled out his clenched fist with the middle finger sticking straight out and quitely said to me "Stick it to em".

    We cannot visit this summer but have plans of coming over next year, our best wishes to Joe's family and many, many friends.

    Gary Kennerson and the "Downunder Gang".

    "He's probably already dealing a hand of "pitch" to George and Larry," said Karla Harrison.

    Very sad to hear of Joe passing. Dad and I always looked forward to seeing Joe and Larry when we went to Linn Creek or Bosco's. Both class guys and fine shooters. We truly missed Larry and now sadly we will miss Joe as well.

    Got the pleasure of meeting Joe a couple of times. He was a class act. My condolences to those close to him.

    I'll miss Joe as well. First time I met him, in Vegas, he loaned me his doubles gun. I hadn't brought mine alone, and he wouldn't take no for an answer. Friends ever since. Steve Johnson

    Arangements were made yesterday. Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. on Sunday and the funeral will be Monday morning at 10:30 at the Baptist Church in Slater. The family suggests in lieu of flowers to make a donation to the cemetary. When I get an address to send memorial donations to, I will post it.

    We will miss Joe so very much,he was a true friend, always a handshake for Burlie and a big hug for me. This is truely like loosing a brother, we had been through a lot together.
    bet he and Larry, Keith,Ceorge, and Jim are having a good pitch game or a god round of trap.
    May he rest in peace, our thoughts and prayers are with Dorothy and the family.
    Olabell and Burlie
