Our sincere condolences are extended to the Rowe family. Joe has been a long time friend of our family. He was my Dad’s fishing partner for years. Joe’s kindness to us was a true blessing. He has helped us numerous times over the years. Joe will be missed by many who knew and loved him and were able to consider him their friend.

Dear Jack and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son, Joe. Will miss seeing you and Joe at the garage in the summertime and stopping to chat when I drive by. God bless you all during this very difficult time.

Posted at 12:57pm
Joe and I worked together at Peterlin Distributing. . He was a hard worker, honest and funny. In later years when we would see each other in town, it always felt as if I was catching up with a dear friend. My sincere sympathy to all of Joe's family, and friends. With deep sadness for Joe, Nancy Regis
