Joe was a very close friend of mine and my sister Judy Kershaw Bunker. We hung out a lot at our house with him and his brother, Chuck Knapp. we would sit at the kitchen table telling jokes and talking music. I'm so sorry for his loss to all of his friends and family. I will always remember him with fondness.

Joel was a great friend for over 25 years. As a coworker and friend his quick wit and genuine sense of humor made everyone feel at ease. He was also generous in sharing his time and expertise. One way this was demonstrated was volunteering more hours than anyone would have expected to help fix a roof and make sure the job was done right. Likewise, his volunteer work with the Kalamazoo dive team was inspiring and further demonstrated his willingness to do the tough job. Joel was hardworking, but he was also a warm, funny, patient and giving person and we will miss him greatly.
