    I played baseball with Joe at Muzzy Field during the summer. It was a ritual to meet in left field, mark out the diamond and play ball with occasional jaunts to the playground, pond and multi bubbler fountain. Our condolences to the family.

    Joe was the sweetest,quietest,most dedicated guy — an essential part of our great Lottery team. He almost single-handedly oversaw the big relocation job to new offices in 1998-99, while simultaneously continuing the extensive compilation of statistical data that was so helpful in constructing Instant Games. I fondly remember spending hours under his tutelage to do everything possible to improve The Lottery. I now regret that we seemed to lose contact following our retirements, but I’ll always think of him with the deepest respect and affection.
