I had the pleasure and joy of working with Joe at Mid-South Companies from 1984 til 1990 in the claims department.
I still tell Joe Finney stories today! He was a special person to know and work with. My thoughts and prayers for the family.

I am a first cousin of Joe. His mother, Eunie Pool Finney, and my mother, Amie Pool Bivins, were sisters. I knew Joe while we were growing up and I knew his wife, Dorothy. We were not able to see each other much in later years, but I will always remember him. I send my love to the family.
