  1. I met Joel while working at Andrew’s transport. I was always happy to see him and enjoyed his carefree personality. Never meet a person before that I liked so well. My heart is saddened by his loss. Joel you were one of the greats.

  2. Joel was such a nice person. I knew him through his brother Danny and also, I had a great friend that worked with Joel at Affiliated Foods. I always kept up with him as long as she was with Affiliated. Our Dad’s worked together at the City of Amarillo and became Coffee buddies when they both retired. My deepest sympathies to the family.

  3. Joel was great guy . I was a coworker of his for several years . Sad that he had to go , hoping he’s happy with where he’s gone to .
