      Born in Dickson County, Joe was the son of the late Joseph T. Nesbitt, Sr. and the late Frances Elizabeth Blue Corlew. Joe worked for a number of years in the Conservation Department for the State of Tennessee. In later years, he has worked in management for convenience and retail stores. Joe was an active member of both St. James A.M.E. Church and Rising Sun Masonic Lodge #49. He answered the call to serve his church as a Trustee and by serving on its Usher Board. He answered the call to the Masonic fraternity by working tirelessly to raise funds for charitable purposes and to promote harmony among his fellow men.

He did much to promote and improve relations of friendship and brotherly love within the community.
