Having just very recently learned of Joe's passing, I am still coming to grips with the loss of such a talented, professional and caring person. My friendship with him spanned almost 25 years and I loved him dearly - I last saw him in December and all he could talk about was the love that he had for his beloved Max and his need to show me his house and come to Atlanta to see mine... Words are hard to come by these days when it comes to this - he worked so hard and sacrificed so much in order to be able to retire to Kiawah Island - where he really wanted to live - and it is devastating to know that he will never get to enjoy his retirement in the place that he loved... I will miss his smile, his unbelievable good looks, his brilliance and most of all his heart... Heaven got a good one... Til we meet again my love...

I wanted to let you know how sorry I was to hear about Dr. Trubia passing away. I first met Dr. Trubia when my wife broke her ankle and he was willing to do the surgery on Saturday so she would not have to wait all weekend. He was so nice during her recovery period and at the office visits.

I again I offer my deepest condolences.

My first memory or working with Dr. T was him yelling my name after I went to get more instruments during a procedure! He was fond of the ballet (when performed correctly), he loved to tell jokes in the OR and my fondest memory is his description of him chasing Max around the golf course while in pajamas. He laughed so hard and he loved his Max. He brought me pictures to show him off. We didn't hit it off at first but I grew very fond of Dr. T and we had an understanding when we worked together. I wish he had shown this side to more people. I'm sincerely shocked at his sudden passing and will remember him fondly always.
He was an excellent surgeon and meticulous in his technique. I wish we could have kept him a bit longer. My deepest sympathies to your family. I will miss him.

Ian shocked and saddened. I was just with Joseph a few days before he passed. He was missing Max who was visiting his "mum".

Joe and I went to grade school and high school together. We were also in troop 66 Boy Scouts together. Infact we made our Eagle Scout rank on the same night. He was one of my best friends in High School. We had many a laugh dipping our fishing lines in local lakes. I lost track of Joe after college but I do remember him dearly. My condolences to his sister Anne and his cousin Eileen Fortese whom I knew. Only the good die young. Rest in Peace Joe, you were a good man!

Anne and family, I was so very sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. I remember the way he lovingly teased you when we were kids hanging around your house or sitting on the brick wall by your house. I want you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Miss seeing you.

I remember when Dr Trubia first came to Patient Partners in Gallatin Tn, and I was providing "our" patient's Anesthesia. He first requested the thermostat be turned all the way down and asked if I could get my Anesthesia debris out of his way. I'll be honest, I didn't like him at first impression. Over several years of working together, observing tyrades, and then mellowing out, I learned a little about Joe Trubia. He was dedicated and serious. He was methodical. He truly cared about his patients, and their outcomes. He loved his dog. He seemed to be misunderstood. It is so sad that such a young man could be totally gone from our sights, and taken from this world just as he seemed to be carving a path for himself. May those who knew him remember him fondly, may his family acknowledge the loss of a respected man, and may Heaven welcome his soul.

Joe was a great friend from grade school thru highschool. In fact my confirmation name is Joseph. I took that from him. We decided it would a great name for me. I actually use it as my middle name. I am so sorry for your loss.
