Joe Waits Jackson Death, Obituary – I’m at a loss for words; the gravity of the situation is pressing down on my shoulders; he was undeniably a gentleman who left an unforgettable impact…After spending the first week of our honeymoon with him and April Cook Waits… (they were married on the same day)… we began to think of him as a friend.After that, we welcomed them as one of the very first guests to our new home shortly after we moved in.
The love was always there, and it could be seen shining through in each and every conversation, text, and letter…I just wanted to make sure you were aware that no one else will ever be able to say “Fire Me Up” quite like this man right here… my Joe Waits eternally saying rest in peace, my friend…I ask that God would continue to take care of the family’s financial needs.Mr. Waits was born on March 24, 1929 in Monticello, Georgia, to the late Joseph Hubert Waits and the late Ruth Carey Waits, both of whom had passed away previously.
