I only met Joe one time, but it was quite memorable. many years ago I was to meet with the Correal's for a sales presentation for a Retractable Patio Awning for their pool area. As a salesman, I was disappointed that his wife Paula was not there, as rarely did a husband give the OK for the sale, let alone, pick out the color of the fabric without his wife's input. Well he was a fun and jovial fellow, bought the awning and picked the color,.....and also gave me a pointer to help get a speeding ticket reduced. Pure men talk. But I will always remember him in a light and fun way. My sincere condolences.

We are so very sorry for you loss. You are in our prayers.

I can see Coach Correal standing on the 40 yard line singing the Georgia Tech Fight Song, like he did every Tuesday during Football season. He taught all of us way more about life than just football. We just did not know it until many years later. Over the past 35 years I have shared stories about him with friends and my children. I have never heard Ramblin Wreck from Georgia Tech without thinking of Coach Correal and smiling. I will continue to do so. My condolences to the Correal Family.

To the family and friends of Joseph Vincent Correal,

We are sad to read about the passing of Joe "Junior" Correal on 19 February 2016. Joe and the Correal family have been friends of ours in Uniontown, PA since the 1960's. He was a man of inner strength and great kindness. Junior will be remembered and missed by all who knew him.

Please accept our love and sympathy while celebrating the life of a wonderful human being.
