To the St Peter family I offer my sincere condolences. Joe as I knew him was my best friend in fifth grade at Dutemple School. We then separated and went to different schools later we met again at Cranston High School and played football together on the 1952 champion football team. He was an outstanding player and good friend.

To the St. Peter family, I was saddened to learn about Joe. I often thought that he was a guy that gave his very best effort on the athletic field. I remember him playing one of our last football games with a broken jaw that was wired shut...something unheard of in todays sports. He always had a smile and a friendly word. My prayers are with his family.

To Dawn, David, family, and friends. I had the pleasure of being with "Al" for over 35yrs and feel the loss of a dear friend. Al did his best work with the "kids" at Legion Bowl. Even the mayor gave "Al" a service award.

My heartfelt condolences and prayers to "Joe's" family and most of all my prayers are with Joe. I started trying to express my sorrow a number of times but was unable to put my feelings into words. Joe was a good friend. We played side by side on our HS Football team.Joe always went all out. While I have fond memories of all the good times we had together, I have also been thinking today of how welcome we were by Joe's parents when we stopped by his house to visit. Warm welcomes always. Sister Joan put up with some of our shenanigans during our visits. Needless to say, Joe was a great athlete. I will never forget him. God bless you Joe.

No need to tell you what a great person "Joe " was and what a great athlete he was. He was also voted the best looking guy in our class of 1953. I played some baseball with Joe in high school and if he did not get hurt so often he probably would have been an All Stater. My deepest sympathies to the entire family and God Bless you all.

I,Donald,went thru school with Joe. My wife & I ended up living two houses away at Gaspee Point. We already miss him.
Henry Papa - 01/05/2012 - 01/05/2012
My prayers to all the St.Peter Family. Joe and I were very close friends growing up on and off the athletic field. I will always remember playing LaSalle in football which ended up determining the State Champs in the 1952 season as the newspaper headlines stated with Cranston havimg a super team and the fact that St.Peter - Frank,Dennis and Henry PAPA (Italian for Pope) leaves no hope for LaSalle in their match. Joe played a fantastic game to lead Cranston to the 7-6 victory. God Bless you all and the Papa Family will unite in prayers for my fellow Marine. "Semper FI"
