Like many of you, RoboJoe helped us out in a pinch.  He was always effiicient and fair, and for nearly all the time we knew Joseph J. Green, he never charged a fee to come out and investigate a problem.  If he couldn't handle the problem, he let you know.  If no one should mess with the problem because the appliance probably wouldn't last anyway, he let you know.

He was an honest man who worked hard and people loved him for it.  RoboJoe was nominated for the Shiawassee A-LIST, "the definitive 'Best of' directory of Shiawassee county businesses," in the category of Best Appliance Repair in both 2018 and 2019.

At 55 years old, Joe passed away on Monday March 11th, after a months-long illness.

Over the course of his illness, Joe did his best to keep clients and friends updated via his Facebook page.  The last post on the RoboJoe page, posted one month ago, read "At Memorial Hospital. Being transferred to Lansing Sparrow immediately.
Heart valve surgery. Will be out of service until further notice."

Joe was a fascinating guy with many stories to tell.  A biography on the RoboJoe website is a good read if you have a few minutes.  Joe, whose "RoboJoe's Major Appliance Repair" business was based in Vernon, served residents all over Shiawassee County since 2003.

A memorial service to celebrate Joe's life will take place on Saturday March 30th, 1pm, at Watkins Brothers Funeral Home, Jennings-Lyons Chapel, in Owosso.
