Uncle Joe Essay

Uncle Joe

A unique sense of humor, an intimidating softie, and one of the most caring guys I know. These are just a few traits that make my uncle Joe different from all the rest. When it comes to his sense of humor, I think of the ledge and the bear outside our car. When it comes to his appearance, you never see anyone else who looks like him; when you see him once, you never forget what he looks like. When it comes to his appearance, you would never think of his personality to be so caring. He is one of the greatest guys on the world and if you got to know him like I know him you would think the same thing.
When it comes to Uncle Joe’s sense of humor, there is nothing that can match it. When he does something funny, he will always put a little smirk on his face and try not to smile and act like he is the cleverest guy in the world. When I was little, he would always take me to ‘the ledge’. This ...view middle of the document...

One time when we were driving he grabbed a branch off a tree and threw it in the back window where I was sitting. He said the bear threw it in the car and again, I would cry my eyes out. He thought it was the funniest thing ever even though he scarred my childhood with those two acts. These are just two examples of how my uncle Joe has a unique sense of humor that sets him away from the rest.
When one looks at uncle Joe, they may be intimidated by his 6’5” 240 pound stature. If not intimidated by that, one may be intimidated by his left hand which lacks 3 fingers. He likes to work with wood and he has cut three of his fingers off working with a table saw. He may be intimidating, but once you get to know him, he is the biggest softie in the world. He loves animals and loves to feed birds by putting bird feeders in his yard. He would never hurt a fly and he is nice to everyone. If you ever see my uncle Joe, don’t be intimidated, he is the biggest softie ever put on this earth and that makes him unique from everyone else.
Not only is my uncle Joe funny or soft, he is also the most caring guy in the world. I have never seen anyone work as hard as this guy works to please one person or to spend a moment of happiness with his family; he wouldn’t even think about procrastinating for a second. Once you get to know uncle Joe, it is truly amazing how much this guy cares about his family and friends. He is a very amicable person. He would go out of his way for anyone at anytime to make someone happy. He is a great dad, a great uncle, and most importantly, a great friend. This trait really separates uncle Joe from all the other good people in the world. He is just an amazing person.
I would trade nothing in the world for uncle Joe. When it comes to his sense of humor, his intimidation factor, how soft he really is, or just how much he cares for everyone, you will not find anyone close to my uncle. He is unique in so many ways and that is why I love him. He means the world to me and I love him to death. There is truly no one better than my uncle Joe and I am fortuitous to have him in my life.
