As a cousin of Joe, I, Donald L. Wilcoxson, while growing up on a farm near Chattanooga, OK in the 1940's, can remember my dad, Otto, speaking highly and quite often of Joe. I could tell that Joe was a favorite nephew of my dad as I heard him mention quite often about not getting to see and visit Joe and his family as he would have liked.
My wife, Kay, and I offer our sincere condolences to the Floyd family.
