Memories Timeline


  1. We were so sorry to hear about Joe. He was a delightful man & will be missed. Our condolences to the family. You are in our prayers.

  2. Stump, your dad always gave me good advice. I will always remember he said “never fall in love with your investments”. It has helped me to this day. He was a great man.

  3. I just learned of Joe’s death…my condolences. I would have loved to expound those good old days when Joe, literally, by himself, saved the DM (and Ike for that matter) football programs and had to fight off the bureaucratic opposition–when he was willing to fund it himself!…I was at the board meeting in 1976 when he did it…he took a lot of heat, but I’m glad he did. He did a lot for the program and the community…I remember when he would come and watch the DM FB practices…and the players would fondly say “here come the owner!”….it was a great time in Sag Twp and he was a big part of it…he brought us all together in 1977 to back Rudy Schmidt for Supervisor during a very difficult time for this community…I remember the meeting well…I could go on and on…including Joe’s Oklahoma brand of announcing the General’s football games! ….wow…great times…Joe, I remember you well, and I’m glad I had the chance to know your family….DM FOREVER!


  4. I just learned about your Dad. He will be remembered for his jovial personality and approach to life. He brought a lot of enjoyment to the Overstreet – Kelsey families. My oldest living brother, Gabe, remembers Joe. The only thing I remember was the time he stopped by dressed in his Air Force Uniform to visit and left us laughing at his humor. Condolences to you and your family.
