Joey set so many good examples for dealing with people and living life that I’m still learning how he helped people without hesitation. At the funeral service I heard how he would drive his truck a couple hours away to help someone move a refrigerator or something else because he wanted to help however he could. My story on that front is that Joey once drove 5 hours to Emporia, KS, because I called to ask him for help with my car. As it turns out, it took all of 15 minutes for him to track down the problem and fix it: it turned out to be a loose wire. He then drove back home the same day. He never complained about helping me and I never heard him complain about helping others. Long before he got married, I figured he’d be a good husband and father because of how he tried to take care of everyone around him. I’ll always remember Joey as the pioneer of our family; doing things before the rest of us not because he was the oldest but because he was fearless and had a desire to explore and learn. I think of him, even now, checking out the life after this one so when we do meet again he’ll want to give us a tour and help us, as much as he can, to adjust and be prepared for the next thing to happen. There are far too many stories of my own to tell about how Joey helped me over the years. There’s no way to adequately express how much I loved, and still love, Joey.

I had the privilege of working directly with Joey over the past four years. Being a non-engineer manager over the highly technical area of belt testing, I relied heavily on Joey. He was my engineering lifeline. Joey had vast experience in belt testing and test machine development, going back farther than anyone else in the company. He could give history and information on the installation and maintenance of any test machine, and thoroughly enjoyed such discussions. On one occasion, Joey noticed there were several different shaft styles and diameters being used on the deadweight testers, and that it was a maintenance challenge for repair and assembly. After a few days, Joey came to my desk with nothing short of a full sized manual with engineering drawings, maintenance explanations, and full history of shaft evolution and design. Joey was that thorough and detailed. Joey was also a prolific out-of-the-box thinker. For a concept or design that most of us felt was direct and forthright, Joey could think of 50 other different ways of doing the same thing. And, some of those options would usually be better, incorporate a simpler design, and/or be less expensive. Joey loved researching new and better ways of doing things. But, Joey was not just about work. He also had an ornery side. A couple of years ago, Carlisle adopted the concept of “5S”, which basically meant everyone had to clean up, organize, and label items and areas in their offices. Joey, being a researcher and always-learning engineer, as well as a recipient or machine and repair parts, had an office area and desk filled with books, magazine articles, and spare parts, with a filing system only he could understand and use. I was shocked one day to come to Joey’s office and find everything labelled and in order. But a huge smile came to his face when he saw that I noticed his chair had a label on the back marked “chair”, and there was a label on the floor marked “floor”, etc. God made a truly unique person when He created Joey. From his quick “I’m going to a fire” pace, to his hair and beard style (I called him “Moses” on many occasions), to his sweat-drenched clothing that would result from his completing a needed task that others didn’t want to do. Joey was always hard working, always dedicated, always helpful. The items in Joey’s office showed what was important to him and what he was most proud of . . . nick-nacks made by a son of preschool age, a cross and Bible verses, including the Lord’s Prayer, and numerous pictures of wife Chris and son Stephen at different ages. Chris and Stephen, you have every reason to be proud of your husband and father. He was a good man. He is sorely missed.

Ma’am, I worked with Joey only a short period, but long enough to know he was a good man. I cannot imagine the pain of loosing a spouse, or a mother her son, or young Stephen loosing a father. Your family will be in our prayers and may the peace of our Lord be with both of you and Joey’s parents as well. God Bless you all, Howard and Pam Flanagan
