He was preceded in death by his parents, Howard Hippach Scharin and Georgiana Brooks Scharin.
Joe graduated from Irvington High School in 1977. Then he joined the United States Air Force from 1978-1982 and graduated with a Honorable Discharge as an Aircraft Weapons Specialist. He also was a graduate of Appalachian State University with a BSBA-Real Estate from 1983-1989.
Joe's family would like to thank their friends for all their support, love kindness and helping hands. His mountain views from where he sat was what he loved, we all know that. His mountain now lays with body and soul. He'll always be here, this we all know. We love you Joe and miss you so. We wish the Angels hadn't ask you to go. Friends, neighbors, family, your nephew and Dixie too, want to say we all love you.
