I just found out about this today and could not believe it. I am so sorry and what a loss to his family, friends and the Rome community. Joe was a great friend of mine since kindergarten. I always admired his stamina and ambition. He and I used to constantly banter about in high school the ambitions of playing football (of course him) verses soccer (me). Then we always had a great time being together.
Our prayers and best to his family.
Our community has lost an awesome man and Heaven has gained, yet, another Angel. Mr. Stegall you were always an inspiration to anyone fortunate enough to cross your path. You sincerely cared about all people and for that, sir, I will never forget you. Prayers for the Stegall family.
Joe and I coached Mite Football together for a few years. Joe's display of patience taught me so much. I enjoyed coaching and Joe made it even more enjoyable. I'm not sure how much Henderson liked his Dad being coach but both gave 110% to our team. Thanks Joe, I am a better person, coach and Dad because of you. Our family extends our deepest sympathy to the Stegall family.
I am so saddened to read of Joe's passing . His gentle heart and the kind spirit were a rare gift to each of us fortunate enough to have known him . Gary and Cindy Boling
Sorry to hear of this. Praying for peace and comfort.
Love , The Newlins
