This guy is a C&NW legend. The older guys knew him and with so many people retiring I wanted you to have this picture to post because it's important to remember these guys whether liked or not. I realize it's not a great picture but probably the only one around. Taken in Butler I believe, 1983-84. My father had it in his old grip, he worked with Joe often and really got along well with him.
