Joseph "Joey" Harold Wilson Jr.

Joseph “Joey” Harold Wilson Jr., age 56 of Horse Cave, went to be with our Heavenly Father on June 6th, 2020. He was born on March 20th, 1964 to Joseph Harold Wilson Sr. and Barbara Hines Wilson of Caneyville. He graduated from Grayson County High School in 1983 where he excelled in football, specifically his senior year as the team captain, voted MVP, a 2x All-State player, and named the All Rough River Conference Player. He went on to play at Tennessee Military Institute and eventually transferred to Western Kentucky University. He lived a Christian lifestyle and was a member of Zion Baptist Church. Joey was an avid deer hunter, a loyal Louisville Cardinals fan, and most importantly, a family man. He began working for Clark Beverage Group in Oakland as a route driver on April 17th, 1989 with goals of working his way to the top. 31 years later, perseverance and consistent hard-work found him as the Chief Operating Officer. He is described by his coworkers and friends as an influential man, a great boss, and well known for his genuine compassion for others. But above all, he is known for his immeasurable love for his wife and children. He was considered Superman to his daughters and the soulmate to his wife. Joey married his wife, Dane Petett, on August 10, 1991 and spent the next 29 years of his life married to his best friend.

Including his parents, Joey is survived by his wife and soulmate, Dane (Petett) Wilson; three daughters, Lexee Wilson of Smiths Grove, Kylee Wilson of Horse Cave, Ali Estevez (Eric) of Tampa, Florida; and three grandchildren, Eliana, Ava, and Eric Jr.

Funeral Services will be held at 1:00 p.m. CST in the back yard of his home on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 (Weather Permitting) under the direction of Winn Funeral Home, with burial to follow in the Horse Cave Municipal Cemetery.

Visistation will be from 2-8 p.m. CST Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at Winn Funeral Home and again on Wednesday morning from 9 a.m. until 12:15 a.m. CST.

We look back with fond memories of the time we spent with you Dane and Joe in the Wine country last summer. I knew Joe prior to this but not well - it was truly a blessing to get to know both of you. I also had the opportunity to see Joe present the "Market Street Challenge" information for Clark Beverages and it was great to get to know more about the business. Joe was clearly a humble man.

I know that one day when you and I are glorified as well we will see Joe again as I know from the moment he left this world he was welcomed into the next by Jesus Christ.

God bless you, my deepest sympathy and condolences for your loss.

I am Bharat Patel, BR from Mobile, Alabama. I want to convey to you and your two daughters my heartfelt condolence. May God give you all the strength to bear the loss of Joe Wilson.

I have met Joe just three to four times and talked with him little more than that. Our talks were supposed to be negotiations and partnering Coca Cola & SAASOA, a gas station owners association. However, the talks, along with business matters, started getting into family, bringing positivity in our society we live in and even spiritual. In such a short span of the time, he became a friend who I could trust, respect and know that he is a Good Man.

He had that little spark in him that would draw people to him. My team and I thoroughly enjoyed dealing with him through our negotiation times of doing business together (even though he was a tough negotiator : )

I was praying to Our Lord, and this verse spoke to me which I am humbly sharing with you.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.
14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
15 According to the Lords word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever.
18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Dane, SAASOA & I will be keeping Joe and the family in our Prayers and want you also to know that Joe will always be in our memories and heart. On a lighter note, I am looking forward to meeting him again in heaven and start our Coca Cola negotiations again. : )
