I’m so sorry to hear that Joe has passed on. Last week he came to me in my heart and thoughts. I didn’t know why at the time but now the reason is clear. Joe was a big part of my start in accounting. I came to know Joe when I was 18 years old working for one of his clients in 1985. Joe also knew my mother, Rebecca Slazyk, through the same clients. She also had the highest respect and memories of Joe. Joe was kind. He gave a recommendation to the City of Phoenix for a job at my age of 19. He hired me to work for him 10 years later after my separation and supported me during my divorce. Joe was a great mentor to me. He used to tell me, “One day you are going to take over my practice.” That thought always scared me because I saw how hard he worked and I could never imagine working so many long hours and keeping all those numbers straight. He taught me so much in the years I knew him. I’m just so sorry for not stopping by to say hello or just making a simple phone call to see how he was doing. He was such a giving person. He was more than a boss to me. He was like a father at times. He will always be in my heart and I will cherish the memories forever.

Sam Briggs and I were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Joe during his time with U-Haul. While we both had limited contact with him over the last 35-40 years, we both have fond memories of working with Joe. He left us with his ever outstanding positive approach to business and life. Joe has been and will always be in our hearts. God bless Judi, David, Janet, and the grandchildren. God bless you Joe.—Dan Mullen
