Joseph Christopher Minor

December 31, 1971 - December 10, 2019

Joseph Christopher Minor, 47, passed away suddenly on December 10th, 2019.

He was born December 31st, 1971 in Great Lakes, Illinois. He was a 1990 graduate of Seventy First High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Joe served proudly in the U.S. Army, as an Airborne Infantry Platoon Leader. After his Army enlistment was complete, he joined the Coast Guard, where he served there for 16 years, retiring as an MKC.  Joe was an avid reader, gym goer, and handyman.  He was a lover of cold weather and 80s hair metal, and hater of bad drivers and loose pennies.

He is preceded in death by his father, Timothy Minor.  He is survived by his children, Emily, Riley, and Jack Minor; his mother, Claire Minor; his sisters, Sara Riley and Lauren Riner (Troy); his Grandmother, Rebecca W. Minor; his nephew Jacob Minor; his nieces Leah and Abigail Riner, and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins. He left this world before his time, and will be sorely missed by many.

A celebration of life will be held for Joe on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 929 S. Battlefield Blvd. in Chesapeake. Family will receive friends one hour prior to service time.

Condolences may be left for Joe’s family below.
