WARREN B. "JOE" HARGRAVE, JR.



CAMPBELL/AVOCA-Warren B. "Joe" Hargrave, Jr. went to be with his Lord on Friday (April 5, 2013).

Joe was born in Bath, N.Y. on December 15, 1943 to Warren B. Hargrave, Sr. and Rosemary "Peggy" Hargrave, both previously deceased.

Joe was raised in Avoca and attended Avoca Central School prior to entering the U.S. Army in 1962. Joe served three tours in Vietnam with the First Air Calvary Division (Air Mobile) as a helicopter door gunner and was awarded the Soldiers Medal, the Bronze Star, four Air Medals with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Good Conduct Medal and clasp Bronze Loops, the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal and Bronze Star attachment (quadruple and Silver Star attachment), the Overseas Service Ribbon and Numeral 5 and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon with device and the Expert Badge and Rifle Bar.

After his military service, Joe worked for the V.A. as a heavy equipment operator in the National Cemetery until his exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam caused his health to deteriorate.

Joe will always be remembered for his love of animals, motorcycles and love of traveling all over the country.

Joe lived in the Campbell area for the past four years following his marriage to Annie Spear. Survivors include his loving wife, Annie Spear-Hargrave; his brother, Dick (LuAnn) Hargrave; his four children, William, Sandra, Warren B. "Joey" III and Carole; and his five grandchildren, Jay, Jessica, Warren B. IV, Amanda and Alyvia. Joe is also survived by his two step daughters, Cindy (John) Spear and Cheryl (Bob) Miller; five step-grandchildren, Cheavon Naylor, Angel (Ron) Naylor-Clark, William (Jessica) Naylor, Michael (Terri) Preston and Amber Dominick; his three step-great-grandchildren, Ayden Halstead, Silver Naylor-Clark and Ronald Clark; as well as many sister and brother in-laws who he enjoyed spending time with.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donation may be made to the Campbell United Methodist Church or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements are with the Avoca Funeral Home, 22 N. Main St., Avoca.
