First half:


of East Williston New York, passed away on August 22, 2018 at the age of 95. As a professional artist, he expressed his unique take on life through various media. He continued to do so well after his retirement as Senior Art Director at a major Madison Avenue advertising agency. He also illustrated over a dozen children's books in his classic pen and ink style in which each whimsical drawing was painstakingly composed of hundreds of tiny pen strokes. Perhaps, most of all, he will be remembered as the original illustrator of Roald Dahl's famous Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which continues to delight children around the world. In WWII, he served bravely in the United States Army Air Corp as a nose gunner on a B24 bomber upon which he expertly painted a pin-up known as "Our Baby". Perhaps she was the good luck charm who guided Joe and his crew safely through 51 missions over Germany...
