Joseph A. (Joe) Fiedler

We received the sad news recently from Sue Palen Fiedler that her husband, Joe, has passed away. Many of us remember them as high school sweethearts. Our deepest condolences to Sue and the Fiedler family, including Joe's brother, Tom, who also graduated with our class. Joe and Sue's lovely daughter, Marnie, was our official photographer at our 50th reunion and captured the event beautifully. Joe will be deeply missed by all of us.
