The bond between siblings is an eternal one, and Joseph held a special place in his heart for his late sisters, Deloris Boothe and Verna Lee, as well as his late brother, Jimmy Dale Carter. He is also preceded in death by his great-granddaughter Collins Jordan.

Outside of work and family, Joseph found solace in several hobbies and interests. He was an avid supporter of Alabama football and took delight in cheering for his favorite team.
