Joe was a member of the Beebe Methodist Church and Boy Scouts of America. He loved his family and friends, especially his furry companion, Missy. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved camping, hiking, boating, kayaking, and swimming. He enjoyed attending gun and knife shows and had a nice collection. He never met a stranger and was always willing to help others.
He liked to grill a good steak and always enjoyed a great party! Joe recently relocated from Beebe to the Greer’s Ferry Lake area in his motor home to enjoy his Shangri-la at the lake. He will be missed by his friends and family!
A graveside service will be held at the Czech National Cemetery on Sunday, 4/30/23 at 2:30 pm.
