Jeanette Bowyer just shared this picture with me, of her parents with your parents. And then your dad’s Obit. I have very fond memories of your family. Especially your grandparents, Jimmy & Helen. Great people!

Your father/grandfather Joe is an amazing example of a follower of Christ. His testimony points others to Jesus. We are so thankful that we knew him and experienced his love, grace, humor, and intelligence. On one of our visits to him he taught us about iTunes and we have enjoyed it immensely! Jim, Jessica, Jasmine, and Josh - you all gave very loving and touching tributes to your Dad and Granddad. Your tributes helped others to understand Joe's heart for the Lord and others. He was a blessing to all who knew him. We will miss him, but we know we will see him again soon. We will all worship the Lord and enjoy laughter and fellowship together! We love you all and pray for God's comfort for you.

We loved Joe and his love for Christ. His humor and grace. Not to mention the most stylish of all of us. We will sure miss him and are praying for all of the family that we hold dearly in our hearts.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was a great blessing to my life when Joe came to be our part-time chaplain at Pelham Medical Center. Joe also volunteered at Pelham Medical Center. Anyone who met him or encountered him walked away with peace. His smile will be with me forever. His great sense of humor was fantastic. We sat together always at meetings and in hospital rounds. He truly, truly walked his faith. Heaven as gotten a wonderful angel with Joe. Love, hugs and blessings on his lovely family. Charlene

Dear Jim and family, I am very sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. I worked with Joe at PMC. We worked weekend together, we had lunch together, we handled the passing of patients and their families together. He was one of the most gentle and sweet men I have known. I learned so much from him and he helped me a better person. I was lucky to have him in my life. I gave him a hard time about walking his cat on a leash. We laughed a lot. Gerry

I will miss my friend Joe. He taught me an enormous number of things in the time I knew him as Chaplain at PMC, The most important thing was how to treat and respect my fellow man. He will be missed. Our nation needs more men like Joe.

Jim and family I am so sorry for your loss. Joe was a beacon of light to so many people. I had the honor of working with Joe at Pelham Medical Center. He always had a smile and encouraging word. Wonderful sense of humor and a fun to be around. Everyone here at Pelham loved Joe and were so sorry to hear of his passing. Heaven is a richer place today. Prayers for your comfort in the coming days as you celebrate Joe's life and legacy.
