Mr. Joseph Turner “JT” Early, III, entered into eternal peace and rest suddenly after a few years of declining health, at the age of 28. He took hold of God’s unchanging hand on Saturday, July 21, 2018, with his devoted and loving wife, Dominique Johnson-Early by his side. Joseph was born on November 26, 1989 in Lynchburg, Virginia to Joseph Early Jr, and Gloria Kelly-Dubose (Darryl). At a young age he was baptized at Holcomb Rock Baptist Church. He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents, as well as other beloved relatives and friends.

In 2009, God sent “JT” a genuine and loving best friend, an angel. They then embarked upon a true journey together hand in hand; “A Walk To Remember” They fell deeply in love and married July 13, 2013 at which time he found a purpose in life, a call to duty to be a husband and father. The world and their union were blessed with his two little “JTs”! He loved his little family they were building together.  “JT” following in his father’s footsteps was a true “Redskins” fan and a talented barber.  He was a big hearted person who truly loved to make people laugh! He lived his life trying to befriend everyone and bringing joy to others; one of the many reasons he is deeply loved and will always be missed and celebrated!

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his adoring wife, Dominique Johnson-Early, his children Jaylah T. Early and Jayden T. Early. His sister, Tasha Early and brother, King Early. As well as a host of family, loving in-laws, relatives and friends.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” John 3:16
