Joe, You were a brother figure to me since we studied and lived together when we were in the PhD program at DLSU in the Philippines. We argued, we laughed, we ate together everyday, we went to vacations together and we remained in touch for over 20 years. You were caring, loving and honest. Every time I was in the DC area, I made it a point to see you because you were like a family member to me. When we met nine months ago, you told me about your retirement plans, the children and what your plans for the future were and we promised to see each other. I promised to come and visit you wherever you chose to retire and I meant it. I did not realize I will never see you again. This loss is very painful for me. Daisy told me you left a note for me to tell me about what happened. I can't stop wishing that you called me before you wrote that parting note. RIP, my brother, the fond memories we had together will remain in my heart for as long as I live. - Jerry Mamo, PhD

Joe worked for me in Korea for some 3+ years and I considered him a truly great worker and friend. He was a professional officer and spoke to truth when there were issues that need to be addressed with clarity. I appreciated his honesty and candor and always rated him to the maximum level possible in his efficiency reports. I will miss him as I only knew good about him.
