Joe was preceded in death by his parents; his beloved wife of more than 43 years, Ilene Gregg Story; and his son, David Story.

He is survived by his children, Robert Story of Washougal, Wash., Kevin Story of Madisonville, and Christina Bensmiller of Whitsett; his grandchildren, David Story and Jessica Story of Washington, and Randel Griffin and Taylor Griffin of Floresville; and two great-grandchildren.

A graveside funeral service was held Friday, July 15, at 10 a.m. in the Emmanuel Assembly of God Cemetery in Poth, with Pastor Norma Ramirez officiating.
