Joe Edward Trammel was born November 12, 1946, to Andrew E. Trammel and Delores V. Badgett Trammel. After a short illness he passed away April 11, 2014, at the age of 67. Joe was preceded in death by his parents. He married, Glenda Giblet June 17, 1965. They have one daughter, Kelly Jo Trammel and one granddaughter Dallis Shyanne Trammel. He attended Cameron College for two years then transfered to Panhandle A&M. He joined the Army at the height of the Vietnam War. There he served four years, before joining the Air Force. In 1979, the family moved to the current home in the country south of Cordell. Joe was an avid reader and was a weekly visitor of the Cordell library. He also loved the outdoors. Joe was a loving, loyal husband, dedicated father and doting grandfather who went out of his way to provide for those he loved. He always took every job he did very seriously. Joe was employed at Allied Gypsum in Bessie for over 19 years. One of his former co-workers, Ronine Capron, said it best. “ I thought an awful lot of Joe and have many fond memories of conversations he and I had. Joe was a stand up guy who had an honorable set of standards he lived by and he was not afraid to tell you what he thought. He was not a wishy washy guy and I respected that. I also respected his work ethic and his sense of right and wrong. I am very thankful I had the opportunity to work with him and to call him friend.” If you thought Joe was your friend, you were. If you thought Joe loved you, he did. Remember this, do something nice for those you love most and his legacy will live on. He is survived by his wife Glenda, his daughter Kelly Trammel and granddaughter Shyanne Trammel. Also by his sister Bonnie Fowler of Tulsa, Oklahoma, sister Robbi Kimball of Tacoma Park, Maryland, brother Mark Trammel of Olathe, Kansas, a large extended family and a host of friends. The family will hold a private memorial at a later date in Texas, as per Joe's wishes. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Cordell Public Library, 208 S. College St., Cordell, Oklahoma 73632 in Joe's name.
