Dear Jeanne, Barbara, Brian, David, Barry, Bruce and families, Please accept our most sincere and heartfelt sympathy. Joe was always a special person to us, kind and thoughtful. Through the years I've enjoyed our verbal sparing, always trying to get one up on each other, and the many laughs it generated, and that belly-laugh of his! The minute we were together "the games" would begin. He had his serious side, religious side, and his fun side. We will remember him for the fine man he was. A conscientious, dedicated family man and always a gentleman. I'm sure a choir of angels guided his path as he mainlined to heaven. Not only have I lost a favorite relative but also a good friend. Our love to all of you at this most difficult time, and though we cannot be there please know you will remain in our prayers and our hearts. More than words can say, Carolyn, John, Garrett, Brock Whitecross & family

So sorry to hear of Joe's passing. May your memories with him provide you comfort! He obviously did a lot of things right if he made it to 84 and was married for almost 60 years! Thank you for setting such a beautiful example! May he rest in peace.

George and Judy Litman - 05/09/2012

To the Guiot Family, Judy and I want to express our sincere sympathy. Joe was such a wonderful person. From our first meeting when Amy,was graduating from Brown, Joe and Jean made us feel like family. Joe had kind and jovial nature. At the times of HOLIDAYS it was great to chat with him. He will certainly be missed. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Craig and Lucy Cotnoir - 05/10/2012

So sorry to hear of Joe's passing, and wishing I could be there to pay his last respects. As my Godfather, I will always remember his kindness, his hospitality, and most of all, his sense of humor. I know he is smiling down on us from heaven. Peace to your family. Love, Craig and Lucy Cotnoir

A fine man and great neighbor. Joe, when at RIHT was helpful in me getting my first house next to his many years ago. It was an honor to have known him. Best wishes to all in his family.

Rose-Marie Eckes & family - 05/12/2012

Jeanne, Barbara, Brian, David, Barry, Bruce, & families. I was saddened to hear of Joe's passing although I am sure he is still around all of you. It was always good to know how much he loved his family... children and grandchildren,,, and you, Jeanne. He was a fine man. I always enjoyed being around him. He was actually fun to be with. Even in the distance across the country, I appreciated his emails and jokes. To all of you my sincere condolences. Love to all. Jeanne, my godmother, I keep you in my prayers as well.
Love, Rose-Marie and family
