Joe has touched a great deal of pipers and drummers throughout the years with his involvement with various pipe bands throughout the Oregon area but more specifically, the Sir James MacDonald, Portland Metro and Portland Metro Youth pipe bands. His generous, encouraging and extremely supportive demeanour and gentle teaching manner will be missed.
He has helped shaped many young drummers into not only outstanding musicians but well-rounded individuals and his legacy will live on with every note that they play.
