Joe received his GED Diploma after attending T.C. Howe High School in Indianapolis, IN and then Lake Weir High School in Ocala, FL. He had an interest in auto mechanics and loved his job and co-workers at Pep Boys. He was also an Electronics and Computer whiz. Joe loved his family, friends and his dog, Connie. He had a heart of gold and was always there to help anyone.

Joe will be lovingly missed by his Brothers, Jay (Caryn) Williamson and Lance (Tracy) Cool; Sisters, Debi Shank (David Allee) and Melissa Williamson; Nephews, David (Brittany) Williamson and Jonathan (Molly) May; Nieces, Amanda (Brandon) Davis, Abbi Shank, Jessica (Harold) Ellerbe and Patricia Williamson; Godson, Joseph Deer and Best Friend, Larry Tindall.
