Although I haven’t seen Joey in many years, I have been aware of his full life with Linde through my contact with Gloria and some of Linde’s facebook posts. I’m so glad he continued to live a full and happy life in spite of the health challenges he faced due to his heart condition and that he took such pleasure from his family as it grew bigger through the years. Joey was always welcoming to me and he made it easy to feel a part of the family when I married his brother Bob. I still remember when I first met Joe back in Katonah, NY in the summer of 1973. Describing Joey as “Big as Life” was an understatement! Of course, there was his huge smile -anyone who met him would notice and remember that! He had such charisma, his presence and laugh and energy would simply fill a room! He was no saint in those days but he was just so easy to Love! And he was also so very handsome, whether wearing his police uniform or cowboy hat and boots. And always jeans, I’m sure that didn’t change! He always loved horses, anyone who knew Joe knew that about him! I’m so glad horses remained a part of his life. I regret I didn’t get up to see him at his and Linde’s farm in NY but I absolutely know that if I had, Joe would have greeted me with open arms and that Big smile of his! He’ll be missed and remembered fondly by be and so many others.

Dear Linde and family, I am very saddened to hear of Joe's passing. He was one of my dad's (Kevin McKeon) best friend and a mentor to me as I was showing quarter horses for many years. I will always remember Joe's kind heart and mischievous smile. He was one tough cowboy and will be missed terribly. Rest in peace Joe. My condolences to you all during this sorrowful time. May you all remember the good times to help ease the pain. I will envision Joe driving to the next show with Garth Brooks "Rodeo" blaring loud and him singing along...Colleen

To Linde and all Joey's family, I haven't seen Joey in years but through conversations with Gloria and some of Linde's facebook posts, I have known of his amazing recovery and full life in spite of some health limitations. I first met Joe in NY back in the summer of 1973 along with the rest of the family and I remember it clearly. Describing Joey as "I have such fond memories of Joe - the first thing that comes to mind, as I suspect is true with many who knew him, is his huge smile, his laugh, and the way his presence and energy could take over a room! Joe had such charisma! And he was so very handsome, especially when he was in his police uniform or cowboy hat and boots. And most often his blue jeans, I doubt that particular uniform ever changed!

Joe taught my daughter to always dress up when showing her barrel horse no matter how hot it was. When she complained, he told her she was a professional and should dress that way. She never forgot that and always dresses up and has taught her daughter that too! Such a knowledgeable man and was a great teacher! He will be greatly missed!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
