A lifelong Oconee County resident and member of the OCHS class of 1982, Joe was married to Teresa Harris Guthrie for sixteen years. He owned and operated Guthrie Home Improvement and was known to be a hard-working, meticulous craftsman. Joe also enjoyed spending time with his friends at the “Watkinsville Shell Station Breakfast Club”, as well as helping with church chicken mull events and fundraisers for several local charities and organizations.
Joe loved all his girls! With 5 sisters, 3 daughters, and soon to be 5 granddaughters, he was frequently heard saying “girls, girls, girls... all he had was girls!” He enjoyed making up both sweet and silly rhymes and songs for his daughters and granddaughters.
