I too am 89 years old. Joe was my best friend in high school. I’ve thought of him many times but never knew how locate him. My sister lives in Cincinnati and sent me the obituary. My condolences to all the family.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your father and grandfather. Growing up across the street from your family, I have many fond memories. One of them is when your dad was campaigning for mayor. The campaign car was equipped with a loud speaker system, so as it drove through our city all the citizens could hear the “political” tune. It was fashioned to the Irish tune “Harrigan”, but the special political composed verse and inserted name was Haverland. His strategy worked and he was elected mayor – and a fine one, too! Your dad will live on in all of our memories. Our deepest sympathy to all of your family.

Donna (Paul) and Steve Kemplin

Uncle Joe,

You will always be remembered and held close in our hearts. I will always love and cherish the times we had, you were not only my Uncle, but my Godfather as well. Everyone of us who was lucky enough to have you in our lives were blessed.

May you rest in peace and once again be with those that are waiting for you on the other side. (Say hi to Dad and Aunt Janet for me).

Love you.
