Condolence From: Havard & Donna Macik, La Grange, TX
Condolence: Our thoughts and prayers are with Joe's sons and family. We met Joe over 30 years ago through the door industry, Havard and Joe served on the IDA Board and we have fond memories of those trips as well as the EXPOS. Joe always made you feel welcomed and had a live your life to the fullest attitude. When we talked about our children, his face and eyes would light up as he spoke of them and their accomplishments. We feel very blessed to call Joe a friend and he will be missed greatly.

Condolence: I met Joe in the door industry 30 plus years ago. We served as board members for the International Door association where we spent memorable times together in Maui, San Francisco, Boston, ect. He would attend all our New England trade shows and make a point to stop by my home to visit my wife Celeste and I. We would often go for dinner and sample fine wine or take in a local gun show. He was a friend that you would die for because you knew he’d do the same for you. He will be greatly missed!

Condolence: I am having trouble acknowledging that you're really gone. Covid kept me from your services and I wish I could have been there to celebrate your life with all the friends you had, and those I made through you. Thank you for being a part of some of my best years. I will hold on to the memories and take comfort in knowing I was able to be a part of your life for as long as I was. Much love to you.

Condolence: Deepest sympathy to all his family at this most difficult time! RIP Joe! You will dearly be missed by not only your family but also by the many friends you have earned. I first met Joe at WDC back in the '80s and it was apparent then that he was a super smart young man. Through the years we renewed our friendship many times through our relation in the garage door industry. He gained the respect of so many, in different levels in that industry over his long and viable career. Obviously his family and dear friends lost an amazing person who impressed the many contacts he had. So long Joe, until we meet again.

Condolence: I met Joe a few years ago and we hit it off right off the bat. Joe was a kind and considerate man and very knowledgeable. I came to love Joe just as quickly as we met. A true friend always. I will miss Joe greatly. God Bless.

Condolence: To Joe's Family and Friends,
I am deeply saddened to learn of Joe's passing. I echo all the sentiments about his huge heart. I carry such fun and indelible memories of our time together in the door industry. Joe gave me one of my first big projects when I went out on my own as a consultant, a show of friendship and faith that I will never forget.
My sincere sympathies to all who loved Joe and will miss him terribly.
