Joe Walraven Lived a Big Life

Eastland, Texas. Joe Walraven passed from this world June 8, 2021. He was the rare man who saw life as it should be lived, who ignored self-defeating limitations others often let hold them back. Joe spoke the truth in a way that chilled those not prepared to hear it. He asked hard questions when more polite people let stupidity have its day. Opportunities some of us miss rarely escaped his notice, though it might be weeks, months, some times years before he’d return to each observation to harvest his insight.
