Joseph "Joe" Wade Maxfield Sr., 59, passed away Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014 in Little Rock, Ark.

Joe was born Sept. 5, 1955 in Salem, Ky. to the late Louis Vernon and Emma Alberta Maxfield.

He attended Crittenden High school in Marion, Ky. and served in the United States Army. Joe worked for the aluminum industry for nearly 30 years in company's based in East Chicago, Ind., Wabash, Ind., and Prescott, Kansas. He possessed a strong penchant for storytelling, loved hunting, and enjoyed -- more than anything else -- the value of time spent with his family. Joe was known to those who loved him and whom interacted with him as a listener, thinker and a caring, focused individual that often offered strong and sound advice to those in need. He leaves behind a legacy of shaping his children into strong self-sustaining adults to whom he is regarded as nothing short of a hero.

Joe is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Karen Joyce Maxfield; daughter, Candace (Colt) Umphenour of Prescott, Kansas; sons, Joseph W. Maxfield Jr. of Prescott; Thomas J. Maxfield of Lafayette, Ind.; Weston L. Maxfield of Lafayette; grandchildren, Brianna Clayton of Valparaiso, Ind.; Reagan O.

Maxfield of Carrsville, Ky.; sisters, Myra Watson of Marion Ky., Verna Doris Rushing of Marion, Ky.; and Roberta Joyce Trautvetter of Evansville, Ind.
