Condolence: My Mom worked at the IRS service center for many years and I had the pleasure to meet Mr. Cloonan. This was over 30 years ago, but I always remembered how nice he was when my Mom introduced us. My condolences to Mrs. Cloonan and the family.
Condolence: Mr. C was always a force to be reckoned with. When I think of him, I think of strength, integrity, intelligence, family and faith.
I was lucky enough to be welcomed into the family as a close friend of Maureen's. I spent many Coke-a-nights (Friday nights) with the family hanging out, eating popcorn, watching movies and was even invited on a family vacation with them. His dedication to helping to steer his family (and friends) in the right direction was unwavering. I know he helped me become the person I am now and I am so thankful.
I wish I could be with you all today for the service, but know my heart is with you. Love to all of the family.
Condolence: I had the privilege of working with Joe Cloonan during my tenure at the Philadelphia Service Center. I remember traveling with him years ago on a very hot week to Austin, Texas. He was a true gentleman, as well as a man of great intelligence and integrity. Although I've been retired for many years, I've thought of him often and appreciated the class and dignity he brought to the organization. His family has my deepest condolences.
Condolence: Joe,RIP my friend and former boss. It was a pleasure to work for you and always thought about you. I was glad that I was able to talk to Ginny and to her,children and grandchildren my condolences. The world was a better with someone like you, you will always be in my thoughts
Condolence: My deepest sympathies to the entire Cloonan family. Joe, and yes he let me call him Joe even though his secretary scolded me about it, was one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. He cared deeply about people and was always committed to doing the best job possible in all he did. He is one of the few people in my life who believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself. I will be forever grateful to him.
May all those that knew and loved him find joy in all the precious memories they hold dear.
