  • Steve Pittman We all miss you, Uncle Joe. You were an incredible kind man who always put family first. You selflessly gave of yourself when your kids, nieces, or nephews needed you. You inspire me to be a better father, and to never give up on any of life's worthwhile endeavors. Be at peace - you will always be in our hearts. We love you.
