Mr. Joe Killgore of Lubbock

Joe Mack Killgore, age 68 of Lubbock, Texas was called home in the early morning hours of Sunday, August 30, 2020. He was born March 20, 1952 in Lubbock, Texas to parents H.G. and Billie Killgore. He is survived by the love of his life of 48 years Rebecca Killgore, three daughters Stephanie Cochran, Jennifer Killgore and Andrea Cobos.  As well as eight grandchildren Aiden, Keegan, Addison, Jonathan, Kialeigh, Brianna, Miles and Jude. Joe is also survived by his brother Bill Killgore of Lubbock, Tx. and two sisters Katherine Bourgeois of Atlanta, Georgia and Mary Ann Land of Plano, Tx He proudly worked for Sodexo for over twenty years, first as an Irrigator and then Director of Grounds for Lubbock Independent School District. Joe was the kind of man that anyone who met or knew him absolutely loved and had the utmost respect for him. He was a great role model and mentor and his kind spirit and booming voice were as infectious as his big smile. Joe was an avid golfer, especially in the mountains of New Mexico, and he enjoyed whitewater rafting as well.  All of that came second to sitting on the back porch looking out at the pond that he built with Rebeca talking about their future adventures with their sweet pup Doc. As a father, Joe was second to none, he was his daughters and grandkids biggest fan.

110% a gentleman. Joe always offered to help me with my yard work. After I accepted his help, he reminded me of a kid in a candy store. Full of joy, loving what he did, and living in the moment. An inspired life for all of us. Surrounding all with arms of love and comfort.

My heart goes out to Joe's family. Although I didn't have the pleasure of meeting him, I feel Joe's essence as his sister, my dear friend Mary Ann, speaks about him. A kind and generous spirit who will be missed by all. Sincere Blessings, Susan and Bob Murrill, Dallas, Tx..

My heart is breaking for the family. What a tremendous loss. We got to know Becky and Joe through the years of taking care of their fur babies here at the vet clinic. Such a sweet couple. Joe was always so upbeat and positive no matter what was going on. And I will never forget his smile. My sincerest condolences to the family and especially Becky. I know Joe is up there playing with Max and Charley now. Again, so sorry. This is a loss for us all.Love, Tami
