Joseph "Joe" Haynes McCarty

Joseph “Joe” Haynes McCarty Jr., 73, of Maceo passed away Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at Signature Healthcare Hillcrest. The Whitesville native was born August 15, 1949, to the late Joseph Haynes McCarty Sr. and Opal Hamilton McCarty. Joe graduated from Daviess County High School with the class of 1967. He served in the US Air Force in Vietnam. Upon his return, he joined the Teamsters Union (local 215) in Evansville through which he secured employment at Mt. Carmel Sand & Gravel where he worked on the stabilization crew driving a water truck. Joe loved playing golf and watching UK basketball. The only thing he loved more was spending time with his granddaughter whom he called Angel, Peanut, and Sugar Plum. Joe enjoyed long drives in the country, listening to good music like John Prine and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. He had a great sense of humor and could tell a good LONG story. He enjoyed playing Santa Claus at Christmas time and did so for many years. Joe had many friends and was loved by all who knew him.

Those left to cherish his memory include his daughter, Kristie McCarty- Wright and husband, Adam of Masonville; stepdaughter, Carey Basham-Mewes and husband Chris; granddaughter, Mary-Grace Willow Wright; step grandchildren, Nathan, Katie, and Logan Mewes; siblings, Mark McCarty, Kathy McCarty, and Sara Holland; nieces and nephews, Lane, Nick, Craig,
Wayne, Neil, and Katy. Joe’s family would like to express special appreciation to Dr. Jacob Hodskins, Alyssa with Aspire Health, and the Unit 6 staff at Signature Healthcare at Hillcrest.  

The family will have a private memorial service followed by a Celebration of Life at a date yet to be determined. Care by Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
