WOODLAND, NC – Joseph Blake Lassiter, known affectionately as Joe, peacefully passed away on June 30, 2023, at the age of 71 in Northampton County. Born on July 22, 1951, in Hertford County, Joe lived a fulfilling life full of love, passion, and dedication.

Throughout his career, Joe excelled as an entrepreneur and owned a small car dealership, showcasing his exceptional skills and expertise in the auto industry. He was not only knowledgeable about classic automobiles but also possessed a remarkable knack for mechanics, making him a highly skilled and sought-after professional in his field.

Joe also had a deep respect for the armed forces, proudly serving in the army for four years. In his free time, he indulged in playing golf, a pastime that brought him joy and relaxation. Additionally, Joe was an avid fan of superhero comics and movies, an interest he shared and enjoyed with his son Blake, with Superman and The Hulk being his favorites.

Joe will be dearly missed by his beloved wife, Carolyn, who stood beside him as his steadfast partner throughout their journey together. He is also survived by his loving son, Blake Lassiter, and his wife Sandy of Woodland, NC, stepdaughter Brandee Mcfarland and her husband Chris of Greenville, NC, stepson John Theodorakis of Greenville, NC, granddaughter Terra Jade Lassiter, and four grandsons: Nathaniel Blake Lassiter, Christopher Adam Mcfarland and his wife Taylor, T J Mcfarland, and Noah Blake Mcfarland. Joe is also survived by his three sisters: Sue Ayscue and her husband William of Woodland, Emily Hadian and her husband Javad of Oakton, VA, and Felicia Cooper and her husband David of Woodland.

Joe was preceded in death by his father, Tommie Wilson Lassiter, his mother, Mabel Bryan Lassiter, and his brother, Tommie Wilson Lassiter, Jr. His passing leaves a void in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

A Visitation will be held on Sunday, July 2, 2023, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Woodland Baptist Church, NC, where friends and family can pay their respects. Following the visitation, a funeral service will be conducted at the Woodland Baptist Church at 3:00 pm, with Rev. Dr. J Brabban officiating.

In memory of Joe’s life well-lived, let us celebrate his lasting impact on those around him and cherish the memories we shared. He will forever remain in our hearts as a dedicated family man, a skilled professional, and a passionate enthusiast of automotive treasures and heroic tales. May he rest in eternal peace.
