    I met Joe when he formed a fast pitch softball team. I am so sorry to learn of his passing. The whole Reyes family are great people. I played on his team for four or five years. That was a great time in my life. Joe will surely be missed. Prayers for Mrs Reyes and all of the Reyes family. Rest In Peace Joe.

    I grew up with Joey Jr. , And spent many hours playing sandlot baseball across the street from Mr. & Mrs. Reyes house. Mr. Reyes was always supportive of Joey and all his friends for our love of baseball ….so much so that when we grew out of sandlot, Mr. Reyes formed a fast pitch softball team on which Joey, and many of his friends, including myself played for a number of years. Mr. Reyes was one of the finest men I ever knew.
    My condolences to The entire Reyes family.

    My condolences to the Reyes family as we knew them n would run into to him n his team at most of the tourneys. His teams were always competitive n he truly was a class act and a fine gentleman. One of the nicest guys we ever met along with his lovely wife as they always had a kind word for everyone they made friends with. n there were plenty of people that also held him in high esteem. I was saddened by hearing of his passing n Will pray for him n his familia during this difficult time. May you forever Rest In Peace, Mr Reyes.
