Farewell Joe Izzillo - 394th Engineer

Recommended Posts

Damn, some of these are tougher than others. You get to know someone so well and when he slips away...

 

 

Oh no. I am so saddended to hear this. Even though we never met in person, he has brought so much joy into my life. We've been corresponding for years and I can't tell you how many times he has brought a smile to my face. I will always cherish his memory and his book.

Here's to a great engineer and one hell of a human being.

His self-published book -

"My Nine Lives (minus) One." The publisher is iUniverse.

 

He was so proud of his memoirs!

 

I shall miss you good buddy! :tearyeyed:

His granddaughter posted this on Facebook -

 

"An old English Proverb says: 'The fall of a leaf is a whisper to the living.' When I am gone, remember when you see a leaf falling, that I am here whispering to you and helping you to carry the crosses in your life."

 

That was a quote Joe had in his book.

Joe was a very special veteran, but then aren't they all. I read and enjoyed his book and he will be missed. We on both sides of the Atlantic owe him for his service to us during WW2.
