Not sure what to say?

I will always remember Joe in Jr High and High School. He was a special person and a good friend. His military accomplishments are very much appreciated by all who knew him.

Joe and I attended Mulberry Street elementary school, D. Matt Thompson Jr. high school and Statesville Senior High School together. In January 1966, he and I enlisted in the Army together at which point our lives took separate paths. Joe was a close friend and an outstanding person. He may not be with us now but his spirit lives on and he will never be forgotten. My heart felt condolences go out to his family members and friends.

Joe and I grew up in Statesville and had many fun times together as kids at D Matt as we called it..Mr. Miller always looked after us and followed us to Sr. High. I will always remember Joe for being a very kind person and helping others... My deepest sympathy to the family...Rest in peace...Mac Price

I share your grief, but know that God is with you. He will give you peace that surpasses all understanding.


Praying for all the family during this time.

I am so so proud to call Joe my cousin.We grew up together more like brothers. Joe was one of the kindest people I knew.He inherited quality attributes from two of the finest parents. I will always cherish memories of our childhood days spent with a close loving large family of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and cousins. I will catch up with you later Joe.
