He’d jump in and swim half a mile

Like many others, I fondly recall Joe’s singing and teaching, but my favorite memories of Joe are from my brief time on the staff at HMC. I frequently swam a few laps over the lunch hour during the summer, and Joe was always there. At the time, Joe would have been in his late 70s, but he was still simply a machine in the water – he’d jump in and swim half a mile.

I hope to be in half as good of shape when I get to that age!
