Joe was a graduate of Luther Foster High School, Hampton Institute and the University of Virginia Law School. He began his legal practice with Reynolds Metals Corporation of Richmond and later joined the Hill, Tucker and Marsh law firm. His interest in real estate attracted him to the Virginia Housing Development Authority where he served as Legal Counsel until his retirement in 2016.
A lifelong member of the First Nottoway Baptist Church, Joe was a member of the Old Dominion Bar Association, the Virginia Bar Association, American Bar Association, and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
He loved and cherished his family and his friends and assisted many in the start of their own businesses. A man of many interests, Joe enjoyed reading, investing, fishing, showing dogs, listening to music, and martial arts including Tae Kwon Do, Tai Chi, and Aikido. In October 2019 he became a certified Yoga instructor.
Joe will be laid to rest in a private service in Crewe. A service to celebrate his life will be held at a later date.
