Joe and Pam spent the majority of their life in Texas, where they raised their family. Joe loved to be surrounded by his family. Joe loved fishing and boating, and he loved to travel and take many vacations to the mountains, surrounding states, and always a beach trip. Every anniversary was a party and he wanted all of his children included in the celebration.
In the early 1970s, while living in East Texas, Joe began an in-depth study of the Bible, and in 1973 he dedicated his life as Christian minister of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Since this time, Joe immersed himself in helping others learn Bible truths. He was known as a very giving, loving, thoughtful person who was always there to give a helping hand to anyone in need. He set a great example of true Christianity, helping others learn about our loving heavenly father Jehovah and his son Jesus Christ.
In the mid-1980s they moved to northern Louisiana where they stayed busy in their volunteer work. In the early 2000s, they decided to move closer to their children in Virginia. A few years ago, they simplified their life and decided to move to Belize, where they lived for two and a half years, helping a small group build a Kingdom Hall and learn Bible truths.
