  1. An Angel called back home. I hope you’re full of your usual full smiles.
    You were like a big brother who brought joy to soo many of us.

    You made time to check on me after my illness during the lockdown. I do appreciate all your time and efforts to cheer me up.

    Thank you for helping to shape my love for Kiz, each song brings great memories of your infectious laughter (i have the videos you took for me, each one has your voice 😊).

    I am heartbroken we couldn’t catch up where we left off.

    I pray God to give you Eternal Life and keep you safe.

    Its not a bye, just a farewell on the journey home.
    Lots love.

  3. I never met Joseph but was devastated to hear of the death of such an inspiration man, who had obviously made a huge, positive impression on the lives of so many people.

    On behalf of everybody at the Armour Centre, Bovington, I wish to extend my deepest condolences to Joseph and his family, friends and colleagues. The loss of a soldier is keenly felt by the whole Army family and indeed the wider community.

    Wish deepest sympathy

  6. Joe was known by so many on the dance scene. He always had the biggest smile and was so welcoming to everyone. His love of salsa and kizomba music was something he shared with us and there was always a queue waiting to drag him from the dj booth for a dance. He was a fantastic lead, teacher, dj and friend and will be greatly missed. He proudly spoke of how big his family was and my condolences go out to you all.
