JOE has passed away. I felt my heart drop when i heard this news.
I met Joe, his wife Ann and all the children back in the days.
A big man has passed, he loved children and the outdoors and never turned his back to any one. He and my past husband bowled together in Baton Rouge many years ago.
Salute to you MR. JOE from Chanetta and Brooke Cotton.

I was on D-4 with Chief Armenio and though we were about the same age I looked up to him. Also learned a lot from him. Sad to see he has passed, I’m sure is looking down and watching over all of us now. Fly high Chief.
