On behalf of Pleasant Hall Volunteer Fire Company, I wish to send our deepest condolences to the Family. We thank Joe for the years of service he provided to our communities as a volunteer fireman. Joe’s love for animals led him to perform mouth to mouth resuscitation on a kitten at a House Fire in Lurgan back in the early 90’s. I remember him on his knees with his fire gear on performing CPR on the cat in the front yard. The kitten was revived and lived several more years. His actions made national news. Well done Joe! Rest In Peace and God Speed!
