A beloved instructor who heavily influenced us back at Monty Tech in the early 70's. May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God always rest in peace.
We all loved him

To the Raimo family the North End Subaru-Mazda family and I offer our condolences.

Through the North End Rewards program we feel like part of the family and will continue to share the fabulous Dutch Kitchen with all our clients.

Last summer I was blessed by helping Alysha with a vehicle and we shared stories of the day Mary and Joe chose their Subaru and the hard work and dedication Joe instilled in everyone around him. I smile every time I think of Joe.

Being a Baker is really hard work and we so appreciate your whole family dedicating themselves to providing all of us such great fare.

In celebration of Joe,

Bob Waite
