Joe and Carol are such loving Christian folks. The moment I met these two awesome folks, I knew the Lord wanted me to know them. Joe was a wonderful Man. He had a light about him that shined bright. You knew Joe was a leader and a man of faith. May the Lord bless Carol and his family. Joe until we meet again!

Much love,

We were real shocked to hear about Joe . We are so sorry and will keep you and family in our prayers.
We were just talking the other day about camping at Okefenokee Swamp and the guys chasing armadillos through the camp site. Not to forget to mention the Road Runners and what fun all the boys had together .We did have some good times together.
Anything we can do please let us know.

Bonnie and I are deeply saddened by our friend Joe’s passing. Many years ago, Joe became my friend and mentor at Cartersville First Baptist Church. He dedicated so much of his life to serving CFBC and drawing others to also serve. Over the years, there are so many great memories.

Joe Maddox was a good man, who loved Jesus, his wife Carol, his family, his friends, and God’s people. I miss Joe and there is a hole in my heart caused by his absence. Our family offers our deepest condolences to Carol and Joe’s family.

Carol and family,
I was saddened to hear of Joe's passing, but rejoice knowing that he is with Jesus. I'm thankful for the friendship both you and Joe have with my mom and dad. Your travels together have given them such happy memories.

Often at CFBC, if my dad wasn't the first to greet us on Sunday mornings, Joe was. He was always smiling and offered a hug. My dad would have gummy bears in his pocket for the girls. If my dad happened to miss a Sunday, Joe would get gummy bears and have them to give to the girls. I'll never forget that small but kind gesture.

Joe was a great man! I'm thankful to have known him. Love to you and the family!

Gary and I were so saddened to hear of Joe's passing.
In the all too brief time we knew him we grew to appreciate his dedication to Cartersville First in the the service areas in which participated.

He was such a presence, always greeting everyone with a smile, handshake or hug.

We know that moving forward you will be drawing strength and comfort from the Lord, You and your family will be in our prayers.

With love,

Gary and Jackie Cosper

Joe was a special man that I got to know while he attended Cartersville First Baptist. Joe never met a stranger and was always will to serve his church and his Lord. While a deacon together, Joe took me under his wing and showed me the ropes by keeping me accountable with my widows and other responsibilities. I always enjoyed my time spent with Joe talking about life. He will be truly missed.

Prayers to Ms. Carol and the rest of the family over your loss.
