Obituary for Joe Evans Partridge
Joe is survived by his wife Joyce, son Joe (Lorraine), daughter Sandra, grandchildren Emily Nonnemacher (Ben) and Skyler Partridge, and a great granddaughter, Lilly. He was predeceased by his parents Frederick and Hattie Mae, brother Ray and sister Mary Ann Mitchell.
Joe grew up in Sumner, Mississippi and often spoke of the escapades he shared with his boyhood friends. He even wrote a book about his childhood, which was filled with the stories, pictures and memories he cherished.
Joe was the proud brother of Captain Frederick Ray Partridge (AF), an accomplished pilot who was shot down over Korea in a reconnaissance mission in 1952. Joe also served in the Air Force, just before meeting and marrying Joyce, for what would have been 60 years this November.
Joe’s passion was music. He had a discerning ear and could name all the versions, artists and years that a song was published, and why one arrangement excelled over another. He loved to share his passion by making CD’s for his friends and family, customizing them and designing covers that showcased his humor, nostalgia and style. We treasured them as we will always treasure him.
