I just read this and feel so bad. I was one of the Eucharist ministers from St. Peter’s who took communion to him at his home. I would have definitely gone to his wake but I just found out today. Mr. Saia was such a nice man. I will miss him.

My sincere condolences. I worked with Joe at Union Carbide and enjoyed our time there together with the metallurgists in the research and development dept.
