Condolences

Condolence From: JoAnne DeKlavon
Condolence: My sincere condolences to Joe and his family. Denise Young and I enjoyed Joe's company while he showed us around Chattanooga, Sweetwater, and Gatlinburg, TN. They were places I would not have otherwise known about. I admired his humor and courage. We will miss Joe's company. God bless Joe and your family.

Condolence From: Barbara Eidemueller
Condolence: My deepest condolences to all of Joe's family. We often went to lunch together when we worked together at Bayer. To Michael, your dad once told me a story about a time you took him out to dinner in San Diego. He said a staff member at the club approached the table and asked "Mr. Burger, would you care for anything else", as your dad turned to answer he quickly realized it was you that was being asked the question - not him. He was so very proud of you and the person you grew to be.

Condolence: Joe:

I will miss you. I will always remember your annual Christmas visits. You would always buy me a video game and we would play all day.

Condolence: Joe:

Your trips to Pittsburgh will be greatly missed. You were part of our family. I enjoyed you staying with me and Bob. I will miss making you "dippy eggs" (your favorite). Haha.

God Bless

Condolence: Joe, my friend, I will miss you. You were a great friend to me, Mike, Emily and my family. My friends will miss you as well. I have fond memories of my trips to Tennessee and the places we visited. Your trips to Pittsburgh will be missed also. Remember all the 25-year club dinners we attended. We have a lot of great memories.

Rest in peace.

Sincerely,

Denise Young

Condolence From: Linda Dunn
Condolence: I enjoyed meeting Joe and helping with the move from his home to a studio apartment in assisted living. When the one bedroom was available at Dominion, it was a joy to unpack and display his treasured scientific instruments and die-cast cars. Joe knew the make and model of the cars as I unpacked them and displayed them in the curio cabinets. This is a memory I will cherish. Rest in Peace Joe.
