Joe Allen Hurdle, 68, of Muldrow, Oklahoma, passed away on December 3, 2013, with his family by his side. He was born on July 16, 1945, to the late Willie Lee Hurdle, in Aulander, North Carolina. Joe retired from the Postal Service in North Carolina prior to moving to Oklahoma to fulfill his dream of becoming a race horse trainer. He loved his family, horse racing, and country music. He was brought up in the Baptist faith and later converted to Catholicism and was an active parishioner in both.

Joe was married to Shawna Lee Hurdle, 43, and had 3 children, Michelle Lee Hurdle, 30, of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, Adelia Ann Hada, 48, of Park Hill, Oklahoma, and James Allen Kaler, 50, of Macclesfield, North Carolina, and a stepson, Jamie Allen Wilson, 25, of Roland, Oklahoma. He also enjoyed 4 grandchildren, Angela Marie Lovell, 25, Matthew James Hada, 12, and Michael Allen Hada, 10, all of Park Hill, Oklahoma, and Blade Allen Wilson, 3, of Roland, Oklahoma, and a great-granddaughter, Olivia Marie Lovell, 2, also of Park Hill. He was an only child but will be missed by many of his extended family including aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was pre-deceased by his ex-wife, Judith Marie Hurdle.
