Pappy Joe will be missed GREATLY! He never missed a ball game of his grandkids. He always had time for a word or to straighten us kids out.
AND YOU HAVE NEVER LIVED UNTIL YOU RAN INTO AN ELECTRIC FENCE, IN PITCH DARKNESS, WHILE RIDING A MULE WHILE COON HUNTING WITH HIM! Mind you, Pap AND the mule knew where that hot wire was, AS THE MULE DUMPED YOU INTO THE FENCE!! He just laughed. I dont think we found a coon that night BUT WE HAD FUN! Man the years have flown.
His reward will be great!
Thinking of you all.

A wonderful man of God touched so many people. Fond memories of the entire family from early childhood days. He and Nancy were always smiling and so willing to help others. Cherished memories.
