Condolence & Memory Journal


Joe's life of service inspires us still. ... in WWII in Europe. ... his legacy as a Boy Scout leader... Uwharrie Trail and Birkhead Mountainss Trails visionary.

My first "Afternoon Hike Into The Past" with Joe -- just us two -- was on a warm sunny 1973 day. For hours we rambled in the Birkheads, past the old Gluyas Mine, Betty McGee's Creek, his beloved Fern Valley, Camp 1-B, Bingham Graveyard, his Fair View -- where the view is indeed fair, even in full foliage. We spotted a raccoon high on a pine trunk, staring down on us. Joe knew every bend in trails he helped create, was in his element, and I will forever treasure that first day of many. RIP, old friend and mentor.
