    I did not know Joe but from the stories I’ve heard over the years from his sister and nieces I know I would have enjoyed him, sounds like my kind of people. My deepest sympathy to those who lost this much loved man.

    Bobby so many memories since I was little from visits to the Bar you owned (not while it was open to public just dad passing thru to quickly visit before opening….soda pops is what I remember), fathers day outings, dances at the Wild Palm me being an adult and everything in between. You always were the life of a party making people laugh. Now heaven has quite the comedian and a beautiful Angel! Hugs Love Prayers and Kisses to all of you!

    So many good memories of you sweetie. You were part of my youth in the 60’s and 70’s in New York and your friendship was very important to me and Uty. You were always a good friend and I am forever grateful for you and your family. Hope you are resting in peace with Uty and all your family and friends ❤
