Joe Wise, age 96, of Chattanooga passed away Thursday, April 20, 2017. He was born August 19, 1921.

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of our beloved; Husband: (Mary Lawson Wise), Father: (Edward Bryan, Donald Allen/Kay, Steven Jay/Gordon, Grandfather: (Jason Scott, Lauren Joelle), and Great Grandfather: (Addie). He is preceded in death by; Son: David Clayton, Parents: Rebecca and Jake Wise.

Joe was a man of great ethics, honor, compassion, love, and humor. He was a man that loved his family unconditionally. Joe was an avid golfer and played every day, well into his eighties. He had a remarkable twelve "holes in one". During a discussion that we had with Daddy before he passed, he said that he guessed there wouldn't be pallbearers at his service, because he had out lived everyone. He kept his sense of humor up until the end.

Rest now, and know that you will be missed.

The family will receive friends Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 12-2 p.m. at the East Chapel. Graveside services will follow at 2:30 at Forest Hill Cemetery.
