Joe Raymond White

Mr. Joe Raymond White, 71, left his earthly home on Friday, April 8, 2022

Joe was born on April 23, 1950, in Elbert County, GA to Allen White and Sara Lucille Stapp White. He owned and retired from Bowman Spray Specialty disinfecting chicken houses which was a job he took great pride in. He was a veteran of the Army National Guard. During Mr. White’s lifetime he had many skills: he was an avid horseman, farmer, woodworker, gospel singer, and family man. Joe was a member of Unity Baptist Church in Royston, GA. Joe made the transition from his life-long farm in Bowman to Mt. Pleasant, TN in 2020 and enjoyed trips to the local Maury County Co-op, walks around town with one of the family dogs named Tito, gardening, assisting with home projects, Sunday services at The Church at the Mount, and dinners at Longhorn surrounded by family in his final months.

He is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Autumn and Chad Craig of Mt. Pleasant, TN; son, Courtland (Cynthia) Grizzle of Bowman, GA; grandchildren: Jessie (Katherine) Grizzle, Nikki (Jason) Neal, Kaitlyn (Jeremy) Justice, Joelie (Brennan) Tucker, and Kyle Craig; many great-grandchildren; special niece and nephew, Amy and Carey Williams; sisters: Dianne Osornio, Virginia (Doak) Dingler, and Nancy (Howard) Heaton; and special friend: Becky Davis.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his loving wife: Matilda Louise “Tillie” Hill White; first love, Elizabeth Ann King White and their shared son, Ethan Allen White.
