Joe E. Lott, of Albuquerque, left this world to be with the Lord on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013. He was born in Clinton, Ark., on Nov. 8, 1924, and was wed to the love of his life, Doris Ann Milloway, in September of 1955.
Joe and Doris resided in Albuquerque for 33 years. Joe proudly served in the United States Navy during World War II as a radar operator aboard the USS Granville and the USS Jerauld. He later retired from American Linen Supply Company. He was an accomplished gardener, as well as an avid reader, but above all else, he had an unmatched love for his Creator that was evident in his character and treatment of any person he encountered.
Joe was a pillar of strength and wisdom to his family and everyone knew they could count on his sound spirit for meaningful advice and support. Joe was a member of Grace Church of Albuquerque.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Sarah Lott, as well as his nine siblings.
He is survived by his wife, Doris; sons: Joseph (Mary) Lott Jr., of Albuquerque, and Glenn (Ruth Ann) Lott, of Berthoud, Colo.; grandchildren: Amanda (Greg) Vehar, Kristen (Kyle) Nelson, of Albuquerque, Jacob Lott and Jessica Lott, of Berthoud, Colo., Ryan Alcala and Joey Alcala, of Albuquerque, and one perfect great-granddaughter, Grace Nelson.
