Joe and I became good friends while working together at the Sheriff's Office, which continued on through the years. He was a great Homicide Investigator, whose compassion and quick wit served him well. Our golf outings left some room for improvement- just like our fishing trips, But we always had a good time- laughing our way through. Joe will be missed by many, because he was "one of the good guys". May God bless you Lucy, for the care and love, you have always shown for him. Rest in peace "Joe G"--we will miss you .

So many good memories with Joe. He was always looking out for others, caring and generous. He also had patience too... remember him taking my dad to Lowe's, walking every single isle with him while my dad picked up and looked at everything. Enjoyed his sense of humor too. We shared the same birthday, November 24, and I remember my aunt, Gail Harrison,, making us a shared birthday cake. She walked in to present it to us and it slid right off the tray, into the Christmas tree and went to the floor! Joe never let her live that down. Joe was a very special person, and more like family than a friend. Much Love, Joy
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I had the pleasure of working with Joe at the Sheriff's Office, for many years. He was a great friend and one of the best of the best law enforcement officers, that I had the pleasure of working with. Just a few weeks ago I called Joe and had the best conversation with him. I will cherish it forever, and as we said good bye, he said "I love you", and of course I loved him back. I'll miss him with you Lucy will be praying for God to comfort you and your family.

I’ll forever be grateful for Joe. He was a gift to GCSO, and his recommendation was why I was able to be a chaplain at the sheriffs office for 9 years. Until we meet again, dear friend, you will be missed and you are loved.
