"The only thing you take with you is your character." - Mr. Jose Angel "Joe" Agostini

He was native of Puerto Rico, and a member of a closeknit, highly regarded South Adair County, KY family, visited so soon ago by the death of Mr. Agostini's close brother-in-law, Donnie Wheeler on October 26, 2017. Mr. Agostini was employed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Department of Juvenile Justice at the Adair Youth Development Center. He had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of the Columbia Seventh Day Adventist Church. He was a man passionate in his beliefs; he loved nature, be it fishing or hiking, and was continually amazed and blessed to be interacting with God's creations. His love of God was also evidenced by his love of children, and he held a special place in his heart for the kids he worked with.
