Joseph Glenn “Joe” Gilpatrick, 60, of Milton, FL, passed away on May 28, 2020.
Joe was born in Norfolk, Virginia on July 29, 1959. He is the son of Larry Glenn Gilpatrick and Nelma Christine “Chris” Gilpatrick. He worked as a Master Carpenter for more than 40 years creating, what he called, “his masterpieces.” The ties he created within our community will never be replaced.
In 1998, he met the love of his life, Linda Gilpatrick and married her on March 22, 2010. Joe and Linda picked this date as it was the first day of Spring which represents the time for rebirth and renewal of growth. With the many years together, they built a beautiful life full of love and enjoyment with their children, families and countless cherished friends. Joe always adored his 14 grandchildren the most and would always say, “Linda and I are very blessed with these gifts of life.”
Joe loved to hunt, fish, play sports and pull pranks on everyone around him. He prized cooking and “grilling” for his numerous family and friends. He loved Alabama football and made sure the family knew it! Joe took great pride in his carpentry work and he did build masterpieces. He treasured good time rock n roll. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He was a very wonderful man, with a huge heart, who loved to help others.
Joe is survived by his wife, Linda Gilpatrick; his children, Jacob Gilpatrick, Bryan Gilpatrick, Shane Gryner, Chad Corley, Brant ”BJ” Corley and only daughter Amber Corley; his brother John Gilpatrick; his sisters Rena Gilpatrick Alexander and Sharon Bush; his fourteen grandchildren and numerous friends he called family.
