I fondly remember Joe’s animated telling of tales at our dinner table in the 1960s and 70s. Sometimes you’d hear the same story told over again, and it would be startlingly similar to the original telling, no matter how many years had elapsed between one telling and the next. This I found quite impressive, as it showed there was deliberate art behind his well-honed delivery. He could make any narrative interesting, I am sure. It is hard to tell whether his stories were truly great in themselves, or just because of the way he told them! Or is that all the same thing? He will be missed.
