So sorry for your loss, Joe will be missed. He was fun to talk to and a good neighbor.

Ken M. Gaff on Feb 7, 2018

Kids, your Dad came to work one time with that grin on his face. He said he'd found a large black snake out back. Then he figured he'd take it over and show the neighbor lady, who was working in the kitchen. The snake by this time was wrapped up along his are and looking quite menacing. Your Dad held it up to display his catch, sending the neighbor screaming while fleeing to safety.
Great sense of humor and a mischievous grin. Ken and Vada Gaff.
