Joseph Robert McMinn

March 6, 1944 — September 8, 2021

Marion, North Carolina

Joseph Robert McMinn, passed away peacefully on the night of Wednesday, September 8, 2021. He shared his passion for children with the many educators and families he touched with over forty years of service. Training teachers, serving as a mentor, and caring for hundreds of students by providing security, a knowledgeable and dedicated staff and tremendous love. Some of his greatest teachings were how to love each other and to appreciate the beauty of the world around us.



Joe was an avid fisherman and hunter. Spending much time “under the weather” where he enjoyed the beauty of the Earth, peace and the presence of God. He often sketched what he saw in intricate detail. This is a talent he passed on to his children and grandchildren.



Joe received many rewards as an educator. But his greatest reward was his family. Spending time with his three children and grandchildren. Always in his heart. Son Bo and his wife Mary and daughter Kaitlyn. His daughter Julie, her husband Bob and their children, Finn, Sydney and Grady. His son Andy, his wife Allison and their three children Will, Gentry, and Emily. His wife and soulmate Diana. His brothers, Jim and wife Eleanor, Ray and his wife Mary Ann and sister Rebecca. A host of nieces and nephews, friends and wonderful neighbors. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jesse and Cruiser Bostic McMinn. A daughter-in-law Robyn Crosby McMinn and granddaughter, Lauryn McMinn. And brother-in-law Bill Owens.



A funeral service will be held on Monday, September 13, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at Pleasant Gardens Baptist Church with Reverend Scott McMinn officiating. The body will lie in state from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for those who wish to pay their respect. Please kindly wear a mask.
