So sad to hear of Joe's passing. I have a lot of great memories from the neighborhood growing up....walking to school at Highlands, dirt bikes "behind the tracks", a dune buggy, playing drums, and so much more. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Prayers sent from the Volkmans to all the family members. Joe was a lifelong friend...one thing i could always count on when i was with Joe was that each time would be filled with laughter. No matter how long the gap was in between meetings it always felt like we could catch up in a minute. He will be missed greatly.......
