Joe is survived by his daughter, Bobbi Jo Martin, of Hartford; son, Jacob Ray (Erica) Martin, of Hartford; three grandchildren, Harleigh Pullen, Jamison Pullen and Tyanna Smith; brother, Roger Martin, of Hardinsburg, Ky.; a very special aunt, Maggie Hale, of McQuady, Ky.

Expressions of sympathy are suggested to Western Kentucky Hospice.
