The Kinetic Co. was a generous corporate citizen of Greendale. Their support of the Grounds Building and Hose Tower project was an example of their goal of giving back to the community of Greendale. The Greendale Historical Society is proud to include Joseph Masters as one of its great friends. He will truly be missed.

Joseph Masters was a great friend to me. We met at a restaurant that I worked at in Whistler, British Columbia, where he golfed in summer and skied in winter. He was a valued customer to all the businesses he felt with here and contributed to our local charities. We will miss him greatly.
