Serious Question. Who was Joe21? I have seen several posts about his passing but not sure who he was/is.

He was a WW II vet, a gentleman, a kind man, great husband and great father and he loved Clemson so much that it is legendary. One of the best!

If I can locate the article about him I will post it.

Who was very sharp and insightful on all manners of life. Just search for his name on here. He was a character. Great asset!

Joe21 was also a Korean War vet. I was able to learn more about what happened in Korea through Joe's stories. My father served there and was never able to talk very much about it. Thank you, Joe. You will always be missed.

who, after being a Gator Grad, came to Clemson in mid 50’s with his true love and they found additional true love there, where the Blue Ridge yawns it’s greatness and where the Tigers roar..

and preceded to spread that Orange Love around the globe when traveling by giving out Clemson & Tiger PAW items, maybe 15K, and as such he was called “The Tiger PAW Man” or “ Mr Joe”.

Also, he served in WW2 & the Korean Conflict and wrote about those experiences on TigerNet.

Check out his zillion posts relating to Life, Goodness, Service, Caring, Loyalty, Etc.

Thanks for asking!
