I was so sadden to learn of the passing of Joe Groseclose. I have spent the last couple of years trying to get in contact with him for my dad David E Reynolds. Sadly I was not ever able to reach him and my father passed. My father enjoyed visiting and trading with Joe at his store on Kingsport and considered him a friend. During that time of their lives they were both young and enjoying life. It was an honor to know Joe and I know heaven has gained two great men!!

I met Joe at the first Baltimore MAX Show back in the late eighties, seems like we struck up a friendship right from the start. Joey and Lisa's tables were always one of my first stops at any show we attended. Always, always, a Lady and Gentleman to deal with, such a pleasure. So sorry to hear of Joe's passing, he will TRULY be missed by many. Rest In Peace my friend, see you on the other side. Larry & Terri Stewart
