Joe David Erskine passed peacefully from this life to the next on June 14, 2023, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Joe was born on April 2, 1942, to Mary (Curry) Erskine and Norman Neal Erskine in Falls County. There, he along with his brothers Norman and Tom lived a life much like that of Tom Sawyer exploring the land and countryside where they grew up, learning to swim in the tank, develop a love of fishing, and it was here that he developed one of his hobbies. Hunting for arrowheads! Most people that knew Joe know about his extensive collection that developed over his 40-plus years of hunting! While living in the Tomlinson Hill area near this grandfather, he told a story about jumping in the back of their grandfather’s truck on a Saturday night, heading to the local momand- pop shop on Highway 7 where a large white sheet was spread across some trees and a “cowboy picture” was shown. We are quite sure this is where Dad developed his love for Westerns!
