Very sorry to hear of Joes passing. I sailed with Joe and his lovely wife on the `Queen Elizabeth 2` ten years ago. He designed some of the ships, OIL TANKERS, I sailed on, built in England IN 1969, ESSO NORTHUMBRIA class, 250,000 tons. The world will not see his like again. Rest in Peace Joe and fair weather and a following wind. Cheers Brian Aspinall, England.

Marilyn, I was shocked to read of your Fathers passing. I have fond memories of you and Paulette playing here in Lake Shores. How lucky you are to have had your Father so long. I wish you the best of memories and hope the love and caring of family and friends will help you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Sharon Fenton Lawrence

Sandy and I were so sad to read of Joe's death. We saw him so recently as we said goodbye to Shirley, his beloved wife and a long time friend of ours. Joe was a class act, intelligent, talented, warm, and very dear. We were privileged to know him, and will remember him fondly. Our sympathy to all the family.

Dear Joe, I am so grateful for the wonderful memories and inspiration you have given me. I consider myself very fortunate to have shared an important part of my life with you and your family starting with Josie and ending with Shirley. But don't give up on me now. I intend to catch up with you one of these days, and when I do we will pick up where we left off old friend!
