So sad to hear Joes passing. I met Seargent McRorey in the summer of 1985, I was a 19 yr old looking for a career, I walked into the AF recruiting office and within minutes Joe took me under his wing. He was such a father figure and showed me all my options. He even took me to Reese AFB on his day off to showcase the AF to me. I was instantly hooked. I entered the delayed enlistment program and for the next 4 months he would teach me everything I needed to know for my upcoming Basic Training. I was so grateful after my second day of basic as I already knew most everything they were about to teach us. That sure made basic training a piece of cake. After graduating I had 30 days of leave and I spent about 2 weeks hanging out at his office before I left for my first assignment in England. After my 2 years I returned to Amarillo before my next assignment. You guessed it, I spent nearly every day visiting him. Later I lost contact with Joe until a few years after I retired in 2005. I found him on facebook and we picked up right where we left off. We had some pretty good discussions about everything. RIP my friend! Love you Brother!
