Just can't say enough Joe, you were one of a kind and a great man. I will always here you say to me you will always be my little girl. I will miss seeing you and the hugs you gave me even if i'm not in the family. You always made me feel like i was always a part of you and the love you gave me and you accepted me no matter what.  I will miss you and i will always love you and i know you are in a better place where there is no more pain. But i know you are up there running after the angles. Love you, and you will always be my father in law.
Sandy Stimeling

I would like to express my condolences to your family. I have only known Joe for about 5 years. In that time, he was always courteous and friendly, humorous, and just a sweetheart. I know that he walked a rocky road at the end of his journey, and maybe it would be helpful to know that he walks a much softer, gentler path. Filled with sunshine, warmth and peace. Maybe there will be tickets there, and he will win at least once a day:-) In closing I will say..I will miss my friend Joe.
Blessed be,
Stacy Lynch

Sorry to hear of your loss. Will remember the good times with him.

 My deepest sympathy to the Stimeling family.  I have not seen Joe since he was a young boy and he had that award winning smile.  Darlene and I were friends.  I have many fond memories of your family.  So sorry for your loss.
