Joe's Sun-Times obituary
Joe Maltese was one of those larger-than-life men who was filled with joy and stories and kindness. Whenever we came into Andy's, there he was, always greeting us with a smile. No evening was complete without talking with him. He could talk on any subject and always be interesting. We will forever treasure the memory of the night were lucky enough to have dinner at the Maltese's. They made a great feast for us and Joe wove the story of his life in Chicago into it. We were blessed to know both Joe and Mimi. Our hearts go out to you Mimi. We will miss you, Joe, but hold you close in our hearts always.
