  1. Although I left GE 17 years ago, I would often stop by and see the guys. I sure will miss seeing him and hearing his witty comments. Goodbye Joe, but enjoy fishing up there in heaven.

  2. My sincere condolences to Mrs. A, DeeDee, and the whole family. I had many a fun and mischievous time with my best friend Joe. Peace to you all.

  3. I am deeply saddened by the news. I knew Joe from our grade school days in West Oak Lane and I have great memories of travelling to the “country” to visit the Alletags in Hatfield. I will never forget him nor our times spent together. My deepest sympathy to all. John Caruso

  4. Joe, May you rest in peace, gone to soon. I’ll always remember going for boat rides, we had such nice times. You will surely be missed. God Bless to all the Alletag Family.
    Love, Debbie and Larry

  5. Dear Joe, I am so sad to hear of your passing. Your smile and jokes will be greatly missed. I will always have the memory of you taking us out on your boat. We had so many laughs that day especially when we were fishing and I was so excited thinking I caught a fish but it ended up being a baseball cap. That was the biggest joke between us. Thank you for the memories and all the laughs. To the Alletag family, we are sorry for your loss and know that Joe will be missed. RIP JOE and I know you are still smiling.

  6. We were neighbors with Joe for almost 16 years. He was a great friend, neighbor and P-Pop to my 3 kids. He was always willing to help out with anything. Including school work and computer problems. Whenever the kids had a problem with a school project, they went to go see P-Pop. Joe was family to us. We love you and We will miss you Joe. Rest in Peace.

  8. I knew and worked with Joe for more than 30 years. I will remember him as someone who would always crack a joke, or just crack a smile whenever you saw him…..
