Dear Titlebaum family, I was deeply saddened to learn of Joe's passing. I met Joe 9 years ago when he was volunteering on a ZOA program. Later he became a ZOA: Pittsburgh Board member. He became one of my go-to people. I could always depend on him to perform a task well when called upon. A couple of months ago he told me he was at peace with where he was in life with his illness and had no regrets. He loved his family, had a great life, but only wished he could see his daughter in Israel one last time. May his name always be for a blessing. Stuart V. Pavilack, Executive Director Zionist Organization of America: Pittsburgh

I met Joe over the phone about a year ago, and visited him several times in his home and in the hospital. He always had a big smile whenever he saw me. Last time I saw Joe was in his apartment, where he proudly showed me a photo of his grand daughters. He lived a full life and he was ready to go. I will miss him. Rest in peace, Yosef ben Chaya Sara.
