Joe Harold Breeden known and loved by so many as "BEAR", a beloved husband, brother, father, step-father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend entered the kingdom of heaven May 24th 2013. Joe was born in Gladewater, Texas on January 21, 1949 to Joe Harold Breeden and Mary Helen Breeden. He was preceded in death by his mother, father, step-father, and grandparents. Survived by his wife Carrolyn Ann Breeden, sister: Mary Katheryn Beckham & husband James, Children: Helen Jo Wright & husband George, Raymond Joe Breeden & wife Cathy, Forrest Allen Breeden, Holly Ann Downs & husband Jason, Clint Anthony Bennett & wife Jennie, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and one great granddaughter.

Joe and Carrolyn have spent many years as residents of Willis, Texas where they are very active in their community. Joe wore many hats including: Willis First United Methodist Church Trustee committee member, Board member of CIA of Shadow Bay, First Vice President of HOO-HOO International, Second Vice President of Lumber Men's Association of TX, Montgomery Co. Fair Association member, Member of Liars Depot BBQ cook-off team, and was an Eagle Scout for the Boy Scouts of America.

Joe graduated from Snyder High School in 1967. He then attended Stephen F. Austin earning a Bachelor's degree in Forestry. He immediately joined the workforce as a plant manager of a lumber treatment plant. This sparked his life-time dedication to the lumber industry, where he formed many life-long friendships. As an active member of his church, Joe and Carrolyn have a large church family and a number of close friends in the Shadow Bay Social Network.

Joe loved the Lord, his family, friends and the great outdoors. He was happiest when he was fishing, hunting, and traveling abroad with family and friends. He fought the good fight and will be missed by many.
