Very sorry to hear about Joe, he was a very nice neighbour to my mom who lived across the street from him.

I grew up on Lendrum street where as far back in my memory somehow Joe was in it. My parents thought highly of him with his quiet nature and helpfulness. It is sad with his passing as one feels a gentle man went to soon. My heartfelt condolences to all his family

I am saddened to read this. I always liked Joe. He always had the time to chat a while. He was a kind man. My condolences to all the family but especially Theresa and Violet who I knew the best.
