This man was the most reliable most honest if he told u he would do it he did it he was the old hand shake and no need for a written promise note like today but when i was a kid he came to my fathers church and at any tome something needed to be fix he was first if not he stood and if any one in church needed car fix he helped he was the real deal not like people today promised u things and never do it this man was a blessing and he’s getting his blessing now
Miss u bro joe he was a deacon in our church

My Daddy always told me from my earliest memory that a Buzzard played me, the Sun hatched me, he found me took me home mother felt sorry for me and kept me.
It was our inside joke.
One day about 3yrs ago I took a picture of a Buzzard on the side of the road and sent it to my mama Geraldine Bell and Daddy and wrote.
(Are you my Daddy)
We shared the best laugh and Daddy said. ( it's about time you figured it out)
Going to miss our many memories but cherish everyone.

Joe was an awesome man. His step daughter and I have been together almost 20 years and Joe and Geraldine was always there. Joe stepped up and became an awesome grandpa to my son when my own Father wouldn't. And he didn't have to, he had his own children as well. He was there when my son graduated said he wouldn't miss it for the world. He had to walk a quarter mile to be there because of the parking situation and that was only a month or so ago. Joe will be missed greatly as good men are RIP Joe and say hi to Travis and Boogie for us, we all love you. ❤
