I was saddened to hear of Joe''s passing. It was always a pleasure, anytime I met Joe at John William''s when back in Bradford. He was truly a nice person. We were all members of the Edgewood Road gang Troutman''s, Bennardi, Frontino''s, and lucky me. We would all pile in Clayton Sr''s vehicle who would us off on his oil lease to Deer hunt. Heating up a can of Campbell''s soup over an open fire was a gourmet treat. Our deepest sympathy to Joe''s family Bob Sargent
