I am so sad to hear of Joe's passing. I worked with him at AET/Taghleef before his retirement. He was always smiling and so caring. When I had cancer in 2005, he was always checking on me. After his retirement, he came to my office a couple of times to chat. One time he even brought me blackberry jam he and his grand daughter had made.

Rest in peace my friend. My sincere condolences to Marsha and the family.

Very sad to hear of Joe's passing. There was never a time that I saw him, he wasn't joking around. I've known the Mackey family since I was a kid. There was 5 of us around the same ages as the Mackey's. We lived in the same neighborhood. My condolences to the whole family.
