Dear Argo Family, while I do not know any of you, and knew Joe just casually during our City College days, I am pained for you. Joe and I shared Homeroom for 3 years at City, and truly enjoyed each other’s company. After graduating we went our own ways, but even now, 59 years later, I still remember what a really fine guy he was...really great; and, through these remembrances I am so happy to know he was blessed w/a beautiful family and wonderful life. May you all know no more sorrow.
Michael Renbaum, June ‘62, City Forever.

Marsha and Family,
I am saddened to learn of Joe's passing. He was always so full of life. Joe was a high school fraternity brother in AZA, a schoolmate at Baltimore City College and was the best man at my wedding. I remember the Newington Avenue days, and our walking across the 29th Street Bridge to school to save the bus fare. Joe enjoyed softball, football, and his 1956 Ford Fairlane. Back in the day he was like my big brother always watching out for me. May God continue to watch over him. Rest in Peace.

Marsha and family, "Uncle Joe" was such a warm, kind, gentle man and I'm going to miss seeing him at your family events. He loved those great-nieces and that great nephew so much and they're lucky to have been on the receiving end of that love. May his memory be a blessing to all you. Hugs and love

I remember Joseph from Newington Avenue in the 40's. It was a very long block and he didn't come down to play with us, so I didn't know him well. May your memories bring you comfort.

I am so sorry to read about Joe’s passing. It was a true pleasure taking care of him at the store. It was always a special treat when he came in with you. Always making sure you had his special breakfast sandwich to go was part of our daily routine. You were always so certain to make sure you took care of him. Thanks to both of you for all your support over the years. May his memory be a blessing!!
