TANNERY, Joseph Alfred “Joe”, 70, of Amelia, Va., passed away peacefully at his home on April 8, 2019. He was the son of the late John and Lounell Tannery. He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Susan Roberts Tannery, his son Joseph John and his wife Melissa, and two amazing grandchildren, Austin and Hollis, and his brothers, John, Jerry, and James, along with many other friends and family members who loved him deeply.

Joe was born in Raleigh, NC, where he attended Broughton High School, and successfully followed his dream of starting his own business, Joe’s Heating & Cooling Service, which he owned and operated for 38 years in the Raleigh area.

Joe had big heart for his fellow man and animals alike, often helping others through hard times. He opened up his heart to many a stray animal, more than once surprising his family with a new pet. Joe was an avid car enthusiast. He loved auto racing and, early in his life, showcased Corvettes through Corvettes International Club of Raleigh, NC. Seemingly, there was always a muscle car or two in the garage to tinker on.

Joe enjoyed traveling in his RV to NASCAR races across the Southeast with his wife, Susan, and their beloved cat, Simon. Joe always loved sharing stories and laughs with friends and family while cooking up one of his famous dishes on the grill.

A celebration of Joe’s life will be held on Friday, April 12, 2019 at 4:00 pm at Woody Funeral Home Huguenot Chapel, in Midlothian, VA. with a reception to follow.

The family wishes to thank Virginia Cancer Institute, Bon Secours Hospice and all his caregivers for the care and comfort they so loving provided. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org).

To Susan and the entire Tannery family:
I was so very devastated to hear of the passing of “Uncle” Joe. He was truly a loving person that brought a special light to wherever he was. I will never forget the fun weekends at the race track or the simple grilling tips he never minded sharing. I send the entire family my love and condolences. Joe’s memory will certainly live forever because of the amazing impact he made on those around him.

Susan, Joey and family, I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Joe's passing. I knew he had been facing some serious health issues, but I had no idea that his condition had deteriorated so drastically. I will always remember him as a very quiet and kind person, and he will be sorely missed. May God bless you as you go through this difficult time, and may Joe be resting at peace. With love, Jacquie Weed
