Graduated with Joel and had several classes with him. Remember him never coming to 1st hour Physics on time. We could hear his car pipes roaring as he pulled up to the school. Best fish and chips ever at the Ringside Cafe.
We are so sorry for your loss. We remember Joel fondly on his many visits to Craig and Terry's house. Shawn remembers helping him out a couple of times and how grateful he was. Our thoughts and prayers are with all his family, we know your pain. Joel will be missed.
