Joseph (Joe) was born on March 9, 1926 in New Albany, MS to Martha Finley and Washington Ferrell. His Mother passed away at a very young age, so his Aunt Annette and Uncle Joe Stacy raised him. He attended Union County School.
Later on Joe moved to Racine, WI. In 1952 Joe was drafted into the Army where he served for a couple of years. After coming home, he worked various jobs with J.I Case being the last one. He loved to go on his daily walks and tend to his garden.
In 1957 Joe married Ruth (Gray) Felt.

He is also survived by three sisters; Lorene McNeal and Lee Dora Gray both of Milwaukee, and Clytoria Stewart of Tennessee. A brother, Doug Ferrell, and many more brothers and sisters on the Ferrell side of Aurora, IL. Three God Children, Carnell Willis, Amanda Reed, and Tanya Houston Ramsey, two brother- in- laws Roger Gray and Unzie Gray, two sister- in- laws, Ora Gray and Maryann Pulliam, and special friends William Canada “Red” and Thomas Hunt.
