Post by GridironGrenadier » Mon May 13, 2019 4:33 pm

Hello, my name is Patty, and I am Gridiron Grenadier's daughter. I wanted all of you to know that he died last Wednesday, May 8th. He loved Army Football more than anything in the world. He was very passionate about all Army sports, and loved coming here and discussing it with all of you. It meant a great deal to him to be a part of the group. Next time you have a beer, hoist one up for Joe. He would've liked that.

Thank You

Patty

Patty, I am very sorry for your loss. Your dad always had thoughtful comments and good spirit . . . never disagreeable.

Though I have never actually met anyone here, I have felt the loss of some of our longtime chatroom companions. Most of us have a strong passion for Army Football and West Point and that binds us strongly together . . . even when things get heated.

Thank you for coming here to give us the hard news on Gridiron Grenadier. Come here and visit with us whenever you can. Warm Hug of Support.

So sorry for your loss and he was a valued member of the group. We are all true fans and I am so glad he got to experience the thrill of last season and see the program truly turn around. He can only be smiling with memories like we have had of late!

Good grief. I was just thinking about him today. I went up to West Point and he gave me a tour and showed me around. A very wonderful man. He was a vital asset here on ArmySports.com helping with running the forum and moderating things. God bless him and his family.

Had the chance to meet Joe for Notre Dame game years ago. Love the good lifelong army fans who stuck with it through thick and lots of thin. BTAP

I am deeply saddened by one of the boards "Old Guard" And someone who has been a part of this board for so long. He will be greatly missed for sure. My heartfelt sympathy to you Patty, and to your family. We have lost a dear friend of Army Football and West Point. May he rest in the hands of the Lord. God Bless you all.
