William Joseph Erwin Jr.

Louisiana. Once home, the family was completed by the birth of their son (Will).
Joe worked all of his life to provide for and support his family. He had many achievements and several careers including owning his own oil company, and excelling as a sales director for Long Distance Savers. Additionally, he worked as a teacher and a traveling petroleum landman. His work ethic was an inspiration to his family.
He was dedicated throughout his life to giving back to the community and helping others. He was active in many charity organizations such as Greater Monroe Optimist Club, the Jaycees, the Adopt-a- School program, Special Olympics, University of Monroe Scholarship, Athletic Foundation, Salvation Army, March of Dimes, and Boys Scouts of America.
His other passions were hunting, football, and his black lab Mia. The running family joke was that he asked for Thanksgiving dinner to be served earlier and earlier every year. This wasn’t because he was hungry; it was because he was ready to get to the hunting camp for the start of deer season. On most fall Friday nights, he could be found on the Neville High School track cheering on the Tigers football team.
Joe is survived by his three children Avery (Troy) LeMaire, Nancy (Matt ) Smith, and Will (Lauren) Erwin; grandchildren Erin, Chance, Chloe, Christian, Lindsay, Landon, Pierce, Reagan, and Joseph; brother Joe Avery; and sister Anne (Ed) Giering.
He is preceded in death by his wife Cherry Erwin, parents Joe and Nelle Erwin, and sister Frances Nell Evans.
A Memorial service will be held Saturday, April 14, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Monroe, Louisiana.
Memorial donations can be made to Special Olympics Louisiana.
