Joe Beckley passed away in Clay City on June 26th 2020 at the age of 55. Joe was born in Greenfield Indiana on August 3rd 1964. He graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1982, and went on to join the army and specialize in field artillery. In his early years, he worked for Lane Northern of Indianapolis. He later owned and operated his own chimney and airduct cleaning service out of Clay City. He spent the last 20 years running his own candle business, Beckley’s Best Blends, alongside his wife. He coached football and little league. Joe enjoyed spending time outdoors hunting and fishing, especially in Cape San Blas, Florida, shark fishing. He loved to make people laugh and was a mentor to many; including his close friends, children, and grandkids. He took pride in sharing his knowledge of fishing, hunting, and sports. He will be dearly missed.
