We are so sorry to hear about Joe's passing. My husband used to see him when he brought his car in for service. I used to work with him when I first started at Amos. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Our sympathy is with the entire Monnin family.

I remember and admired Joe from the many years I saw him at Tim's baseball games at Custenborder Field. I was involved as a coach and umpire. Joe loved his family and had a major passion for baseball. I still envision him sitting on the porch whenever I drive past the family home near Custenborder. How appropriate that he lived near the game he loved. Joe really knew how to throw a baseball. I'm proud to have known him and wish the best to his family.

Connie and Family:
My sympathies for your loss. I have only interacted with Joe on occasion , but have seen him frequently through the eyes of Stevie and Jolene, you can see his greatness as a man in the reflection of how beloved he is by his family.
