I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Joe. He was a great man, coach and a friend. I played at U of H . He helped me in school and tried to help me when I was the head football coach at Galveston Ball. I last saw him at mass at St Bernadette some years ago. My prayers go out to the family.

Joe was my receivers coach at UH from 1971 thru 1975 and unlike many of our old hardliners coaches, Joe was loved by all of his receiver corp group of athletes. Joe was always optimistic, upbeat, and a great teacher. Plus I can also remember him running around that hot humid field in the hottest garb he could wear and was fit beyond fit, workin this tail off to stay that way . What an American Hero that had a very positive effect on my life. RIP Coach Joe!
