Joe wasn't just my favorite deputy to dispatch for, he was one of my favorite people. Joe was a true friend who always checked in, asked how your day was, and asked if he could do anything to make it better. If he could do it, he would. He was a wonderful person. Always joking, smiling, and a joy to be around. I pray for Joe's family and those that are missing him. I know there are many. May God comfort each of you and help you through this.
