Joseph "Joe" Pinkney Havner, Jr.
07/09/1947 - 05/12/2018
It is with tremendous sadness that the family of Joseph Pinkney Havner, Jr. announces his passing after losing a courageous battle against cancer on the morning of Saturday, May 12, 2018. A devoted husband, father, and grandfather, Joe was born in Roxboro, North Carolina, on July 9, 1947, to father, Joseph Pinkney Havner, Sr. and mother, Addie Lou Havner. Having moved to Daytona Beach at seven years of age, Joe attended Longstreet Elementary School and went on to graduate from Seabreeze High School in 1966. It was at Seabreeze where Joe met his companion for life, his wife of 47 years, Dyanne Carrico Havner. Together, Joe and Dyanne moved on to college at the University of Florida. It was after Joe and Dyanne's marriage in 1971 that the couple relocated to Tampa, Florida, where Joe completed his Bachelor's degree in Political Science at the University of South Florida. Joe worked tirelessly throughout his life to raise and care for his family. He embarked on a career in the trucking industry, selling parts for heavy equipment and tractor trailers which serviced the bustling industrial Port of Tampa. His encyclopedic knowledge of the parts he offered and the industry he serviced were put to good use in his years working with industry leaders like Crane Carrier and Mack Trucks. He is pre-deceased by his parents and brother; Joseph Pinkney Sr., Addie Lou and Anthony Willis Havner; and in-laws Wayne, Lois, Gregg and Mark Carrico. He is fondly remembered by his son, Joseph P. Havner, III and his daughter, Amanda Meredith Havner. Continuing his legacy, also, are his two grandsons, Zealand and Zorion; a sister, Sheila Sharpe (Robert); sisters-in-law Sandra Veinot (Richard), Joan Mahoney and Ann Carrico; nieces Tish Atehortua (Hamell), Tashia Colluney, Amber Sharpe; nephews Jason Veinot (Ann), James Sharpe, William Amadio; cousins Connie McKinnon (Turk); additional relatives include great nieces Rachel Barnett, Victoria Colluney, Christiana Sharpe, and Haley Veinot; great nephews Travis Amadio, Zachary Sharpe, Griffin Veinot; second cousins Justin and Brooke Bradshaw. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Coastal Health and Rehabilitation Center, Attention Ashley Peters, 820 N. Clyde Morris Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32117. The family would like to express their deep appreciation to Joe's extended family at Coastal who, since October, 2017, has rendered to Joe, Dyanne, Joseph, and Amanda the most compassionate, competent, supportive and loving care one could ever have received on his journey through life. Services will be held 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at First United Methodist Church of Ormond Beach, 336 South Halifax Drive, Ormond Beach. After the service a celebration of Joe's life will be held at Lulu's Oceanside Grill, 30 South Atlantic Ave., Ormond Beach, FL 32176.
