Joe Petty

February 16, 1933 — January 14, 2023

Franklin

Joe Steele Petty of Franklin, Tennessee passed away peacefully January 14, 2023.

Joe was born in Carthage, Tennessee on February 16, 1933 to Lester and Electa Petty. He is preceded in death by his wife of 48 years Olamae Alford Petty, brothers Rob Neal Petty, Victor T. Petty, Dr. Gordon Petty, and Ray Petty.

Joe is survived by his loving wife of 12 years Barbara Jean Petty, daughter Tammy Petty Brewer, grandson Edward Grayson Brewer (Jennifer), stepchildren Sandra Arevalos, Rhonda Palenske, Linda Sasieta, and Stephen Palenske.

Joe was a gentle, thoughtful, wise, funny, quiet, and loving man. He was an avid reader, especially mystery novels. He never met a crossword puzzle or solitaire game he didn’t like and loved to travel to the Smoky Mountains and Sanibel Island, but his favorite place was at home, with his Bible and most importantly his family.
