Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

Hi guys. This is Joe*s nephew posting from his computer. Since he had so much stuff saved from this forum, I figured yall should know.

Joe passed away peacefully on December 15th. Memorial services will be after the first of the year. From what I heard, he will be cremated and have his ashes spread in the gulf.

Sorry to be the one to give the bad news.

Steven

Re: sad news

Steve, I'm very sorry with the news, I knew he was sick but didn't think it would come to this, he was just on here a few days ago, I really liked Joe even though I never met him, the members here loved him also, he loved this site and the Saints.
He and I would send PM's to each other and he helped me as a Mod here on the site from the get go.
God Bless you and your entire family Steve and God Bless you Joe, you'll be missed here my friend.
Peace be with you Joe,

A Long Distance Friend From Louisiana,

Kevin

Unhappy Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

I know this may not belong on here but I really think the MODs will agree that it does.

I received an email from Joe Irvin 's(JOESAM) nephew yesterday that Joe passed away this past Friday. He wanted me to let everyone know that Joe passed away in his sleep and was at peace.

I never met Joe, as I feel sure many of you didn't, but heartache is still there. It is very hard to understand how you can miss someone you've never met, but I will miss him very much. I know Joe has gone home to the Lord our Father, and that is what sould give us all peace.

I love you Joe and will miss you Bro.

Re: Very Sad News

It's a shock. I don't think Halo knows. I'm Halo's nephew, but how do I tell him. Halo knew Joe and Joe came to visit and stuff.

Re: Very Sad News

I am so sorry to hear this. My condolence to Joe's family and friends. I always had tremendous respect for Joe and considered him one of the best things about this site. I haven't been around this site in quite sometime but I always remember him fondly from my days when I was a regular. I'm sure he truly is a Saint now.

Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

I've been trying to confirm this since yesterday by calling Joe and his phone seems to have a generic voicemail. Joe didn't have a lot of family, but he had a lot of friends.

I knew him personally, he came to New Orleans and we went to dinner at the Embers and recently he was calling me a lot. I think he knew he was very ill.

I want everyone to know that JoeSam was more concerned about this forum and the site running well than his own health. It was like he talked about that for the last few weeks and even sent me several emails and left messages for other mods that he was going on vacation.

Well he went on a good trip, and in his sleep.

When I hear more I'll post it.
