Anyone outside of Leominster would not understand that ROYALTY that you were... You were ALWAYS there.... Cheering on your Leominster Team. Everyone knew you and everyone expected you. You had a harder life than most. I hope now that you are at rest and are smiling at all of the reaction your home town is showing you. You were loved more than you knew.

Joe (Joey) was a fixture in Leominster that will never be replaced. A sports booster like no other, and a friend to all that knew him. As he walked around downtown Leominster a honk of a horn and a "Hey Joey" could always be heard. If you passed by this great man without giving him the opportunity to know you, your life is less complete, because Joe always brought a smile to all, no matter the situation, the time of day or the weather outside. Joe was one of a kind and I will mourn his passing but celebrate the life of this great man. Rest now Joe and enjoy those games from the greatest seat in the sky, you deserve more than we ever gave.
