I think you are thinking of Jim West, Super Joe didn't start jumping till the late 60s. I started in 64 and My C# is 4 digits.

Super Joe was a mainstay when Jan and I jumped there in '69-70. Jan Started there. We credit Jim West for getting her over the little-jumper, BIG HEAVY rig roadblock roadblock by building her a 3-pin B4 and AFF-ing her.

Does anyone know if Joe moved to Florida in the mid 80's?

I don't know, but he was in Georgia (Jim's place there) in the mid-70's. I left there in '76.

I don't think so, around 1980 he went to work for Hogan Air I believe the name was. He maintained a fleet of DC-3 Cargo planes in Hamilton OH and later Middletown OH.
