I graduated with Joe in 1966 from Lehman High School. I remember him as a very nice, and very smart student. He was never aloof and always mixed in with all of us. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. May God give him rest from his troubles and strength to get his family through this very hard time.

He was truly an icon among educators. I was blessed to have him as a teacher at St Thomas and Walsh. The passion for history came through every class. I'm sure he's cheering for the tribe from the best seat in the house. You will be missed but will live on in memories.
