A lifelong resident of Columbia, SC, Joe was an avid outdoorsman and spent as much time as possible golfing, boating, fishing, hunting and hiking with friends and family.
He was the devoted husband to his wife of 60 years, Mary Sue (Reynolds) Parham and a loving father to his daughters, Kelley P. Yarbrough and Helen P. Fox. Along with his wife and daughters, he leaves behind sons-in-law, Dabney (Champ) Yarbrough and Todd Fox; and grandchildren, Carolyn (Cappy) Yarbrough and Reynolds Yarbrough. Joe was predeceased by his parents and his sister.
A private graveside service was held. Shives Funeral Home, Trenholm Road Chapel, is assisting the family.
