We offer our sincere condolences to the family of Joseph Lesley. My mom and Joe were friends for over 25 years. He became like part of our family, sharing holidays and birthdays with us. You couldn't ask for a sweeter, more gentlemanly guy than Joe. He used to love to sit outside in our backyard on a summer Sunday afternoon reading the paper, and join our family barbecues. He was always polite; never spoke an unkind word about anyone.
We still laugh at the time Joe was waiting for my mom who was getting ready to go to shopping with him. He was waiting for her in the garage where my security system pad is located. I think his curiosity got the best of him, and as he was looking at the system pad, he pushed one of the buttons wondering what it would do. It was the fire alarm! The next thing we knew, fire engines were pulling up to the house! Poor Joe. He was so upset!
Joe called my mom on the phone just about every day. My mom will miss that. So will I. Even when he didn't feel well, he never complained much, and his attitude was positive. God bless you, Joe.
With much love,
Eileen and Janet
