Joseph Lee Allday, born on July 10, 1943, a cherished husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away on April 7, 2024, at the Mobile Infirmary Medical Center surrounded by his loving family. 

Joseph's life was a tapestry of service and dedication. Enlisting in the Navy alongside his twin brother at the age of 17, Joseph served on the USS McDermut and USS Galveston before continuing his journey in the Merchant Marines. His commitment to duty was exemplified through his military service.  Following the Military service, Joseph worked as a first class chipper and grinder at Halter Marine and later transitioned to the Mississippi Department of Corrections where he retired as a Correctional Officer. 

Joseph will be lovingly remembered for his kind and sociable nature. He had a remarkable memory for recounting tales from his worldly travels and delighted in sharing experiences from his time in the Merchant Marines. Joseph's interests were diverse; he enjoyed watching Alabama football games, tending to his garden, planting flowers, keeping abreast of current events, and indulging in documentaries and western movies. His affection for Elvis Presley and Marty Robbins added a musical touch to his vibrant personality.

In the fabric of family life, Joseph's presence glowed brightly. Celebrating 50 years of marriage with his beloved wife, Frieda Faye Allday, he was a devoted husband whose love knew no bounds. A doting father to his children, Frieda Diana Allday and Melissa Allday Odom, Joseph found immense joy in his role as a parent, especially when vacationing with his family. His granddaughter, Kali Sabrina Odom, held a special place in his heart as the apple of his eye.

Joseph's memory will forever be treasured by those who survive him: his twin brother, Henry Josh Allday; sisters-in-law, Ellen Green Newman, Ina Green Blalack, and Peggy Green Graham; brother-in-law, Paul Green; numerous nieces and nephews; along with other relatives and friends.

In honoring Joseph Lee Allday's legacy, visitation will take place at Shiloh Baptist Church in Vinegar Bend on Friday, April 12, 2024, from 11:00 AM until the 12:00 PM funeral service with Pastor David Grayson officiating. Burial will follow in Shiloh Cemetery. 

Joseph Lee Allday will be deeply missed but fondly remembered for his warmth, generosity, and unwavering love for family and friends. May he rest in peace knowing that his spirit lives on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know him.
