I want to extend my sincere sympathy to your family. I worked for Little Joe at Chef's! What an excellent boss! I also will always remember the trip, Little Joe and Marshall Snyder, my sister, Martha Jean and I made to Cleveland, Ohio to see Harry Hoover when he was out there for rehab after his accident. Little Joe was a very kind man and had a good sense of humor. He will be missed!
