Preceding him in death were his wife, Edith Donaldson White; parents Willie and Beatrice White; stepsons, Charles Keating and Donald Durham; grandson, Will White; and brothers, Franklin White and Billy White.

Joe was a native of Reform, Alabama, who served in the Air Force in World War II. He was a graduate of University of Alabama, where he later taught Petroleum Engineering. Joe spent time working in many areas as an engineer, including the oil fields in Iran and Texas. He was once chosen to be a lecturer in China. Joe worked in various jobs in Mississippi, including giving permission for opening gas wells. He consulted engineers throughout Alabama. He was also the engineer for the Pickensville Welcome Center, and for the Tombigbee River Dam. Papa Joe never forgot his roots. He was a farmer and gardener, who grew his own fruits and vegetables. He worked both as an engineer and on his farm until he was ninety. Joe's motto was to help people all you can; do the right thing and be the best you can be. Roll Tide!
