Joe's bowling

It has been many years since I last so Joe, but the memories I have are ever lasting. I bowled with Joe in the ARCO league. The Ballbusters vs The Pits was always a highlight of the season. Joe knew I always played my best against them and would cheer me on anyway. He always had a smile on his face and a joke ready to cheer you up when needed. The world has lost a great man! My prayers are with you and your family, Sue Snyder Campbell

Good Guy

I met Joe about 15 years ago when I joined the FLYERS bowling team at Sproul! Joe was always very personable! Sharing bowling tips, knowledge, and his great sense of humor with me!! Most of the bowlers were far better than me and a bit intimidating. Not Joe, he always made you feel welcome, a part of the team! Always asked how my wife was, though he hardly knew her!! Thanks JOE, for making me a better me!! RIP, πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ» 🎳🎳🎳. Nail that '300' tonight, You've earned it! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

I first met Joe at sproul lanes when I joined the Monday night men's league. I remember Joe as a good competitor with an outgoing personality. I enjoyed talking with Joe about many subjects. Joe was always willing to share his observations about what adjustments i may want to make to my game. May he rest in peace.

Just the best

I met Joe 20+ years ago as he joined my Monday night bowling team. Joe was generous, kind, quick witted and very competiteve. Joe always knew the right thing to say at the right time. Joe always asked how my kids were and always took the time to talk to my then young son when I would bring him to bowling. His thoughfulness went to levels which more people need to acheive. I received a birhtday card from Joe every year. A true gentleman who is dearly missed. Rest in Peace my friend!
