A friend and colleague of Alaskey wrote about him in his blog praising his work ethic:

“I once watched Joe for a while as he recorded lines as Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester and Yosemite Sam for a G.P.S. It tooks days and thousands of lines for each…and after he finished as Sam, he couldn’t speak for almost a week.”

“The [voice] I liked best was when he sounded like Joe Alaskey. He had a long, long list of voices but that’s the one I will miss the most.”

 RIP Joe Alaskey
