Donna and David,
I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Uncle Joe. He left me with many fond
memories: Indian Joe chasing us through the woods, Uncle Joe the woodworker, model
builder, handyman and great guy. The memory of him taking the time to build the car that I
drove in the soapbox derby will always stay with me. When I think of Uncle Joe I feel good,
what a great gift!
God bless you Uncle Joe.

Uncle Joe; his passion for auto's, perfectionist, woodworking craftsman, attention to detail &
musical talents will always be remembered.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you - Condolences for the Duda family.

I have some wonderful memories of Uncle Joe. We would usually visit with Mom, Dad and
Michael. On a few of his birthdays, July 4th, I would make a flag cake for him. He would have
it with his favorite, a cup of coffee! Uncle Joe was kind to Michael helping him with a school
activity and making things for him. So talented! I would seek out advice from him for various
matters. I enjoyed our telephone time when he would periodically call just to see how Mom
was doing and chat about things. I will always cherish those memories and the items that he
made for us. He is with my Aunt Marion at rest.
