BadJoe has passed

Posted on 11/01/2012 5:06:27 PM PDT by Jubal Harshaw

It is with great sadness and regret that I post: Joseph Phillips OD, aka “BadJoe,” passed away today, November 1, 2012, after a long illness. Joe wanted to hang on until November 7, 2012, but lost his struggle just a few days too early.

Joe was a patriot, a lover of liberty, and an independent-minded gentleman. He leaves behind family, friends, and a loving wife. He will be missed.

RIP BadJoe.

Too bad he didn’t request an absentee ballot. Goodbye BadJoe, whom I suspect wasn’t so bad after all.

RIP BadJoe.

Had the honor and pleasure of speaking by phone with Joe shortly after I joined FR. I remember he was originally from my neck of the woods, southwestern Pennsylvania.

Whenever I see these type threads I like to post a reminder to put his info up on the memorial wall

http://www.freerepublic.com/memorial/memorial.htm

You probably already know about it but some don’t and I like to see our fellow FReepers remembered in this way.

May he rest in peace.

BadJoe was never one to mince words. Some of the most lively, uhh....'discussions' in FR's early days found him right in the bullseye.

Godspeed BadJoe. Put in a good word for the rest of us.

...and another.

I met BadJoe once at a National Freeper Function; can’t remember which one.

Good man.

So long, Joe.

Rest in Peace.

Prayers up. I’ll tip one for BadJoe on the 7th and know that he’s laughing at me from the other side. BTT.

Prayers to Willa and his son.

Sorry to hear he didn’t beat his cancer, Joe was not only a friend on FR but a personal one since first meeting him 14 years ago!

Oh no! I remember visiting with him for a long time at the 2000 Bush Inaugural. He was manning the cloak room, and my feet had given out and he had a chair. We had a delightful visit, and I have missed his writing on FR, lo these many years. He will be missed.
