Joseph Edward Paris

1948 – 2018

Joseph Edward Paris, 69, of Turlock, CA, went to be with his Savior on Thursday, January 25, 2018.

The son of Rev. Luther J. Paris and Doris M. (Beatie) Paris, he was born March 11, 1948, in Springfield, Missouri. Joe was a longtime consultant to the dairy industry and loved his job immensely. He traveled across the United States for his job and made life-long friends in every state.

Joe bravely fought terminal cancer 4 times over 20 years of his life and gave God the credit for each of his miraculous healings. Joe loved his family and his church and never missed an opportunity to share what the power of prayer can do in someone’s life.

Joe is preceded in death by his parents and survived by his wife Jacqueline; daughter Jennifer Paris; daughter and son in law Laurie and Dennis Carvalho; grandchildren Kimberly, Nicholas, Samantha and Katie Carvalho; sisters Sandy Raper and Joye Bunselmeyer; brothers David, Mark and Rusty Paris; and many wonderful brothers in law, sisters in law, nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held at 10am on February 10th 2018 at Connecting Point Church of the Nazarene, 3200 E. Monte Vista Rd., Denair.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Joseph Paris’ name may be made to Nazarene Compassionate

    To the World’s Greatest Brother! I look forward to eternity in heaven with our Lord and you. I know,like things in this life,you’ll have it all figured out when I get there. It will be but a little while and we’ll all be Home. I miss you now but we have made a life time of great memories! We have served our great great God and He is a rewarder of the ones that love Him. Your rewards have begun and I will see you soon.
    LOVE, David

    Joe: The times we had together were great but nothing compared to those that lie ahead. We will gather around the piano in Heaven and let ‘er rip. Save me a place.

    How well I remember Joe’s talent tickling the ivories. I enjoyed, not only listening to him, but playing piano/organ duets with him (there’s a tape somewhere!) Joe loved His Lord & was never shy sharing his Faith. I imagine Jesus & the Saints are gathered around one of Heaven’s grrand pianos listening to Joe.Love & HUGS to Jacquie & the family.

    So sorry for this loss. I have enjoyed reading the “Remembrances,” and to learn from those who have been really close to Joe. He was in my graduating class from Willard High School, Willard, MO., and he will be misssed. Prayers for his wife and family members for comfort during this great loss.

    I’m sorry for your loss, but encouraged by his faith and the hope of life in Christ.

    I had the opportunity to interact with Joe in the dairy industry. He was always kind and thoughtful. I always enjoyed my conversations with him. My life is blessed for having had a chance to know him. He will be missed! May God provide comfort and hope as you grieve.

    I am so sorry to hear about Joe. He was a special man and his dad was so proud of him. I loved our visit with you for such a short time. I know he will be greatly missed.But i know Luther is pleased that he lived such a great life and now they are together. May the Lord continue to bless you and yours.

    Joe Paris is someone we admire and respect. He was hard working, a gentleman and a faithful servant to God. Before meals at the ranch and our home for management dinners, he would lead us in prayer. He always had a wonderful story to tell or a kind word. The day was a little brighter when we saw Joe. We will miss you.

    I never knew that Joe shared the same middle name as my dad, Joseph Edward Gallo. I wonder if they both knew this?
