  1. My fondest memories of Joe are sort of a montage……..remembering many delicious meals, that he cooked, with Val, Marta, sometimes Carla, sometimes Nicole. Joe and Marta had a wicked sense of humor that we all just couldn’t get enough of. I’ll never forget those meals at the Spino home when I was a kid. Fast forward to more recent years, although much enthusiasm had been lost with the death of Marta, you could still count on him for those quick witted wisecracks that I just loved.
    May you rest in peace Joe, reunited with your beautiful, hilarious, lovely wife. I will miss you dear man.
