    Joe was a wonderful friend to all. His passion for life was contagious. We are in disbelief. He was so full of life and so healthy. We met Joe and the entire McCarthy family when our boys were just 5 yrs old playing t-ball. Joe coached the boys in baseball for about 10 years on & off with Jeff helping coach with him. We became good friends. We vacationed together, went camping together and our boys have remained close friends despite being away at different colleges. This has come as a shock to our entire family. Joe will be greatly missed. He was taken much too soon. Heaven has another angel watching over us. Rest in Peace. We will continue to keep the McCarthy family in our prayers as they go through this most difficult time.
