    Joe was an absolutely amazing person. He had an astounding ability to connect with anyone in minutes and to lift your spirits regardless of the circumstances. Joe always had 'a guy' for everything you might need, from a good espresso to a roof repair. ...  more

    Dear Crupi family, having only started at Starlight last October, I never did have the opportunity to work with Joe. However, in a large office with so many people, I knew who Joe was. I think that says a lot about his big & magnetic personality. Every...  more

    For all the time we spent together on romantic rendezvous. I’m going to cherish all of those moments.

    One of Joe’s most famous Italian lines…
    “Come ci siamo male capiti!”
    (What a misunderstanding between us!)

    I’m going to miss all of your clever lines, my friend.

    While everyone gathered in Morocco sipping tea,
    I myself wondered “What’s up with Mr. Crupi?”

    Soon after I find him laughing and smiling,
    only to discover what he was compiling.

    Compiling what, you might ask?
    A list of nearby espresso bars where he could bask.

    What can I say about this man. Joe is my 1st cousin with many years on me yet still better looking and younger looking than me.
