Message from Mike, Joe's son:
Joe’s funeral was held in a small town where his french wife's mother lived. Only the family participated. Joe used to trout fish and hunt there every time he could get away from the Bar.
Joe wanted no flowers, no tears and no ceremony. He just wanted to be buried with his American flag which flew over the Normandy beaches and to be surrounded by his family.
