Born in Hatfield, Arkansas, December 22, 1934, to Coda Colley and Ola Mae Colley, Joseph lived a long, happy, and blessed life with his wife of 57 years Wanda. Joseph had a passion for airplanes. He retired from E-Systems after 38 years and lived out his retirement flying model planes and playing with his air craft simulator on his computer. As a passionate believer in Christ our Lord,JC was known for helping others. For example, on a trip to Arkansas, JC and his wife Wanda stopped at a rest stop where Joseph saw a vet in a wheel chair holding up a sign wanting food. After talking to the man, he discovered that the man was trying to get to his son which was due for surgery. JC gave the man a cooler of food and money for gas. After asked why he did all that, he simply said, Jesus Christ said to feed the hungry and cloth the naked, and when Jesus says something, I take it serious.
