Growing up as a Syracuse Chiefs fan i first got Joe's autograph in 1963 when i was 10 years old. When i turned 20 in 1973 again Joe was again playing for the Chiefs.I showed him the actual autograph he signed then got another on a Chiefs program.He was a favorite player of mine.My deepest sympathies to Joe's family
