Joseph B. Lake
October 22, 1940 – August 20, 2020
May your memories of me be good ones. For this is only the beginning. Remember all that I have taught you and the strength I have shown you. But I have hung my waders and tied my last earthly fly. When it is your time you will find me in the most beautiful stream with my Daisy.
