Mr. Joseph had been employed with General Motors, retiring in 1969. He enjoyed doing home repairs, classical music and traveling (especially to Trinidad and New York), but most of all he loved being with his family.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by four siblings, Ethel Ector, Vincent Joseph, Vera Parks and Sybil Gonzales; and two granddaughters, Rachel and Jesma Theodore.

Private services were held for Mr. Joseph Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020, at Mount Calvary Pentecostal Church.

Arrangements were entrusted to the L. E. Black, Phillips and Holden Funeral Home.
