Joe was a valuable friend to all lawyers, especially the younger ones who sought his advice. He has been missed since his retirement. My condolences to his family.

To Joe's family, I want you to know how fond so many of us were to have known him. Whenever I saw him, he always had that smile with the tinkle in his eye! He also was a great politician that truly cared about the people. Your quote was perfect. Just found out today. So sorry to have missed the service. Prayers to all.

Joe was a great individual committed to his community and his country. It was my honour to serve with him in Parliament from 1984-1988. His passing is a loss to St. Catharines and to Canada. On behalf of Arlene and I, I extend our condolences to his family and friends.

I'm sorry to learn of Joe's passing. He devoted himself to a lifetime of service to his community and his country. I enjoyed debating with him during the 84 federal elections and I extend my sympathies to the Reid family. I am pleased that he lived such a long life and hope his final years were happy and healthy ones.
