I worked for Klein Tank Lines. I would c Joe every morning. He was always a joy to run into at the loading rack. Never had a bad word to say about everyone. Sorry for your loss.

May you Rest In Peace and the lord be with you. I enjoyed Joe as a friend and co-worker at ExxonMobil for ten plus years. We had many conversations together throughout the years. He will be truly missed.
