I had a brief contact with Joe in the late 1960's. He had taken a job with the State of New Jersey and had moved to Trenton NJ where I lived.

I met Joe at a local duplicate bridge club and we were duplicate partners for awhile, and he participated in some of my family rubber bridge games.

Joe was single, as far as I knew, and was living in a big house in a depressed area of Trenton. He owned the house and was in the process of restoring it.

After a few months Joe left Trenton and we lost contact.
