Joe was my first supervisor as a rookie trooper station in Cleburne in 1979. What a great man with a lot of wisdom may God rest his soul. Thanks much Sgt., Rick Starnes

Tricia and Robert, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Your dad and mom were very special people to me and I have fond memories of the Dvorsky clan. I still remember your dad calling my dad and covering for me even after I backed into Joey's car the first day I got my driver's license. He probably thought, "how in the world did she ever pass her driving test". Love to you all!

I enjoyed working with Joe in the Waco Driver License division. You never knew what he would come up with but he was always fair.
