Dear Marc and Todd, we are so sorry for your loss. We had many special memories with both your mom and dad. One special memory was when we went to a conference in Minneapolis. We discovered at breakfast that the four of us shared the same birthday. Alice and Gary, July 12th and Joe and I, on September 3rd. Our anniversaries were days apart too, in August. We shared lots of laughs and shared a special bond with Todd and Meghan. Keeping you both in our thoughts and prayers. God bless, Gary and Sue Gielau

Marc and Todd, I was surprised to see your Dad's obituary in today's paper. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I worked with your Mom at Home Mutual and was one of her attendants at their wedding. A fond memory of them was when your Dad had the Corvette, your Mom would give me a ride home after work if I helped her take the top off! What fun riding down Memorial Drive! Again, my condolences.

Todd and Marc, our hearts ache. Joe left a lasting impression. He was a great teacher and always kept my values in-check. He tested me in many ways. He lived the ultimate philosophy.- Everyone has value and worth. He was so proud of what you both have accomplished. Todd, with your employment after leaving high school and your home ownership. Marc, what can I say? You and (the other!) Todd are living and carrying on his legacy. Along with your life work and common interests with the WIR, he had high regard for the great young man you have become. Be well. Trek out on your own, surrounded by the great values of your dad. Mary and Dennis

We are sad we cannot be with our family today, due to our international travel. Ironically 14 years ago almost to the day Uncle Joe, Aunt Alice and my mom were with us on this same beach in the Dominican Republic for our wedding. Now all 3 have passed. Today we say our final good bye's with heavy heart, however the pain of Uncle Joe's loneliness has ended and knowing he has been reunited with his love my (my Aunt Alice), siblings Judy and my mom Jeannie, and his parents makes that sorrow tollerable. I have so many memories of Uncle Joe from my early childhood... fishing on Lake Michigan with him & Grandpa, to the many, many years of vacations from the time we were little to adulthood when we brought our next generation along on trips to Minocqua....Bob, Ilene, Uncle Dan & Aunt Arlene, my mom, and all of us kids and then grand kids. I wondered how many families were blessed to spend as much time together as we were with our extended families?! I remember boating, waterskiing on Uncle Joe's shoulders and snorkeling with him. And talking about our Scuba diving experiences with him. In more recent years we took an adventure fill snowmobile trip with Joe and Alice and our kids to Baraga Michigan. Alice was a trooper, and Joe smiled from ear to ear. So many great memories...we love you Uncle Joe and will miss you. Tom, Tonia, Emilee, Caitlyn, Alyssa & TJ Atchison

Joe will be greatly missed by many. I will always have a great personal appreciation for the things he taught me and the opportunities that he helped me achieve. Rest in Peace and I am taking comfort in knowing that you are back with Alice again. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
