    The world lost a great man and i was talking to Joe on FB in September 2021 about Harleys i owned and a month later I heard of Joe’s passing. I’m still in shock over Joe’s passing and did not know he was not doing well but i have not seen Joe since he was visting in Elkton in 2010 or so.-The years go by too quickly and life is way too short. Please rest in peace Joe and thanks for your help with my 1973 Chevelle back in 1987. Kindest regards,Joe K.-
