Joe spent his early years farming in the fields of South Georgia on his family’s farm and spending time on the Altamaha River. He continued his love of growing beautiful plants and gardens at his home throughout the years and he loved taking his children and grandchildren fishing and hunting.
Joe served as a Technical Sergeant for 12 years in the Georgia Air National Guard. He spent 28 years as a well-respected and admired hairdresser in Macon Georgia before moving to Watkinsville in 2004 where he worked for the past 16 years as a barber at Main Street Barbershop in Watkinsville. Joe enjoyed his work. It was always his goal that his customers left his chair feeling better than when they sat down. He enjoyed talking with his customers at the barber shop about fishing and hunting and life in general.
