Passing of Joe Doak “Uncle Joe”
I wanted to inform everyone that Joe Doak, AKA Uncle Joe, passed away unexpectedly the other day. Some of you would know him by name, others just by seeing him. He was the President of Lehigh Valley ABATE and always made it a point to attend our functions, or at least send some of his members to our events. A good man, and way too young to be taken from us.
We will meet up at Yum Yum Bake Shop, 1461 W Broad St, Quakertown, PA 18951. Kick Stands Up at 9:30 am Sharp. Then head down to the funeral home. See Map Below
His funeral services will be held this coming Friday, May 3rd, 10:00 AM at the Scanlin Funeral Home, 175 E Butler Ave, Chalfont, PA. I realize it is difficult for many to attend these on a work day and I completely understand, however, if you are able to attend, please let me know as soon as possible. LV ABATE will be meeting at John’s Plain and Fancy restaurant in Quakertown to ride as a group to the services. I will be joining them and would appreciate as many of us that can attend to join me.
Please let me know if you are able to attend and I will provide additional details as they come to me.
