    My favorite uncle, and the man who inspired me to become somebody. He went back to college a Penn State in the 60's, after starting a successful business, having eight kids. He graduated suma cum laude, was offered a full professorship at Penn State upon graduation ( he passed on that), and worked for Eastman Kodak for years until his retirement. He offered to pay my tuition at RIT and give me a place to live while there, I declined.

    I will miss you Uncle Joe, you always made us laugh and be happy.
