    Condolences to Tony, Marianne, Michelle and Ray. The Rojeks made me a part of their family about 1973-1974. Being single and my family in Arizona, I spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Rojeks. Joe and I worked on his basement together, Rosie, Joe and I played cards from Friday to Sunday on many weekends, and had many memories from the band trips we went on. Joe, I will miss you dearly.

  5. Elden & Esther Laffoon says:

    Joe was one of our best friends. We will miss his smiling face, his hearty greetings, his jovial manner and his propencity for telling jokes. He could always bring a smile to anyone’s face, no matter what. He was extremely proud of his family and missed his dear wife. He was one of the most enthusiastic Legionaires we’ve ever met! Anything he could do to help his fellow vets/Legionaires would be given his best ability to perform! Joe was a great leader and citizen who will be greatly missed by us and our community! Rest In Peace, Dear Friend!
