Joe was born March 8, 1930, in Yale, to Carlyle and Clara (Paul) Huddlestun. He married Wanda “Imogene” Newlin on March 30, 1951. She survives. Joe worked at Ettelbrick Shoe Co. and retired from Quinn Broom Works. He was a member of the Greenup Sportsman’s Club and enjoyed fishing, deer hunting and mushroom hunting. He loved spending time with family and dancing at his grandchildren’s weddings and the Greenup Hootenanny. Although Joe was not affiliated with any church, it is a great comfort to the family knowing that he accepted the Lord as his Savior.

He was preceded in death by his parents; stepfather, Ed Newlin; sister, Sarah; and brothers, Clarence, Forrest, Raymond “Buck” and Kenneth.
