I'm sorry for your loss joe was a great friend and part of our family at Elyria Towing for years. No matter how busy we ever got he was willing to pitch in and stay over and help.....Joe taught me a lot of lessons I was too young to care about but his words of wisdom still ring in my head all the time. He is sadly missed by all who had the pleasure to know joe.
