Hey bro this one is on a personal note. We were more than just co-workers we were brothers in arms as well as our hearts.I will never forget you and remember “no man left behind”, save a seat for me. But you could have waited until we had your birthday party mate.
I am very sorry to hear of his passing. Please accept my condolences.

Even though we drifted apart for awhile there was comfort in the knowledge you were around. You were a Great friend !!! I and my family will truely miss you. Rest in Peace My Friend.

Dont go give GOD any ideas that Keven, Jason and I have to come up to Heaven and remodel the place because it doesn’t suit you. And stay out of our Lord Christ Jesus thrown; 6 months from now I dont want to hear about you trying to take over!

Joe u were like my uncle wish we could of spent more time with you like going camping and shooting the guns like we use to do you will be missed by all of us now you are with god looking down on all of us we love you and miss you we will see you in heaven
Joe you were an uncle to me and my brothers and a brother to my father. i remember sitting in your rodeo and you letting me drive it up and down the driveway. I have fun and happy memories with you and your family. I only wish my kids could share the same memories. See you on the other side. You were loved and will be missed by many.
Joe you will be missed. I can remember like it was yesterday being a young kid and always having you around; whether it was a family cookout, sporting event, or sometimes at my dad’s work. One thing that he always had with him was his contagious smile! That was almost 18 years ago. He really was like an uncle to us kids and would’ve done anything for us. Thank you again for your dedication, sacrifices, and service to our country, may you rest in peace. You will always be remembered but never forgotten.
A shipmate, we trained the next generation of AME’s and PR’s so many years ago while we were stationed at NATTC Millington. You were a friend, shipmate and someone we all could count on. Rest in peace my friend, one day we’ll all meet again.
I know I don’t know your family personally but I wanted to relay my condolences. I know how difficult it is to lose a loved one. John 5:28,29 and Rev. 21:4 helped me during my greiving, perhaps they will for you, too. You are in my prayers and have my sincere simpathy.
My deepest sympathies to Dawn, Heather, Kaitlyn and to all family and friend who loved him. Thank you Joe for being here and touching our lives. You are missed.
God Bless Dawn, Kaitlyn, Heather, Lucy, Eric, and everyone that has been touched by Joe Meehan, you where like my big brother and thanks for everything you did for me!!
My condolences to you and the children. I worked with Joe at Strike Fighter Weapon School many years ago. He was a great friend and shipmate. I saw his grave stone today at the cemetery, it is just down from my wife’s, who passed away December 16, a week before Joe. God bless you and may you have a pleasant spring.
