The information posted above was received via email from Joe's "little" sister Martha Eilert Cain, who still lives in Bogota in the home in which the Eilert family was raised. She said Joe passed on after a brief battle with lung cancer- he was diagnosed in late July 2014 and died in Sept 2014. I spoke by phone with him in the spring of 2013 when our website was being organized; he sounded well and  content living in the South where he apparently had been for many years with his family.
