John Joseph "Joe" Woolfork

Joe Woolfork

A Celebration of Life
Sept. 10, 1937 - July 25, 2007

Joe was Milledgeville and Baldwin County's "Goodwill Ambassador".

He was a dedicated team player with a flair for hosting and participating in social and civic functions. On many occasions he hosted and made his lovely home available for community events, meetings and social gatherings.

JOE loved and lived the arts, was a great dancer and enjoyed entertaining. I understand he and James Brown go way back.

He's doing the Jerk....
He's doing the Fly
Don't play him cheap 'cause you know he ain't shy
He's doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potato,
Jump back Jack, See you later alligator...

Excepts from two of Joe's favorite poems reflect how Joe lived and interacted with others.

1. "Through this toilsome world alas,
once and only I pass,
if a good deed I may do,
if a kindness I may show to a suffering fellowman,
let me do it while I can,
No delay for it is plain, I shall not pass this way again."
-- Author Unknown.

2. Let me live in a house by the side of the road
Where the race of men go by-
The men who are good and the men who are bad,
As good and as bad as I.
I would not sit in the scorner's seat
Nor hurl the cynic's ban-
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.-- House by the Side of the Road by Samual Walter Foss

Joe was a faithful member of several other organizations including; The Zodiac Men's Club, The American Legion, Post 523.
