Joe grew up in a very loving and caring family; one of seven siblings. He was raised on the farm with his parents, who were sharecroppers, and his siblings. His nickname was *Buddy*. Joe attended and completed eighth grade at Macedonia Segregated School. Joe was a very industrious person and possessed a great work ethic. He was gainfully employed over the years and his work experience record began as a Truck Driver, Safeway, and was called to ministry. Joe was united in marriage to Lucille Gatling and from this union raised three sons and three daughters. He was a happy outgoing individual who loved to laugh and talk. He gave good advice and counseling. He enjoyed watching television, sports and really loved watching westerns. He enjoyed eating, but his favorite meal was fried chicken and fried fish. When the spirit hit him in church, people notice that his shout was peculiar. He enjoyed preaching the word and singing.
