Our beloved Father, Grandfather, and friend Joseph Larry Waters, Jr. passed away May 2 in Banner Elk, NC. Born August 17, 1934 to Joseph Larry Waters, Sr and Grace Waters Smith in Savannah, Georgia, Joe rests now after 83 years of fulfillment. A born polymath, he distinguished himself as a research chemist at Tennessee Eastman in Kingsport and subsequently as an entrepreneur. Always his life was enriched by deep artistic sensibilities, most especially through music. His perfectly pitched, sensitively controlled tenor voice was heard in solo performance at an early age in Savannah, in the summer Theater Under the Stars in Atlanta (1957) and ever after in fine church choirs wherever he resided in Tennessee or North Carolina. 
Joe earned degrees from Armstrong Junior College, Savannah (1953); Mercer University, Macon, Georgia (1955, with honors); and the University of Georgia, Athens (1957) His father a chemist before him, Joe joined Tennessee Eastman as a research chemist. He soon proved himself invaluable exploiting both his keen scientific understanding and his great verbal gift, traveling on three continents for the company. Many compliments acknowledged his rare pairing of abilities.
In Kingsport, TN he met and married Frances Lee Earnest. Their sons Evan Scott Waters (Piney Flats, TN) and Walter Laurence “Larry” Waters (Louisville, KY), along with Larry’s wife Katheryne, and their children Caroline and John Campbell Waters, cherish their memory with hymns of thanksgiving.
Intellectually and physically vibrant throughout his life, Joe recently enjoyed a river cruise along the Danube and Rhine and a previous visit to the Greek Islands. He joyfully collaborated with Evan, recently returned to Tennessee from Arizona, in upgrading the family lake house. They both also shared in serious choral pursuits.
Often Joe travelled to Louisville, a city he came to love, exploring it with his son and grandchildren. His pride in his sons, their achievements, and in his grandchildren knew no bounds. Joe died a happy man, full of age, blessing, and joy for everything they meant to him.
