Terry and Linda,
Joe was such a good, dedicated, and trusted employee at Dorr Industries, as well as a good friend; not only to me, but to his fellow employees too.

After he started his “second retirement”, he often stopped in to visit the shop; usually around lunch time so he could see all the employees without disturbing them from their work. He was always welcome, and was invited to special occasion events such as Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

There will always be a special place in my heart for him. Thank you for protecting him during these past 20 years.
