Joe Ambrose Jr

March 30, 1950 — May 14, 2024

Joe Edward Ambrose Jr., 74, passed away on May 14th, 2024, in Birmingham, Alabama.

Born in Los Angeles, California on March 30, 1950, he was the son of Joe Edward

Ambrose Sr. and Winnie Elizabeth Ambrose. He attended Banks High School and retired from

Marmon Keystone after more than 30 years of service. He also spent many years as a truck

driver, delivering to states across the Southeast.

Known to many as "Butch" and to his grandchildren, "Pa Joe", he will always be

remembered for his kindness and generosity. Many say he has never met a stranger. Throughout

his life, he enjoyed making things by hand. He built many things with wood and metal, and he

could build almost anything. He was an avid firearm enthusiast, and his favorite restaurants were

Waffle House, Jack's, and Shaw's Barbeque. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren,

and he loved his family and friends very deeply.

He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Ted and Jaimie Ambrose, son Kelley

Ambrose, son and daughter-in-law Jonathan and Chrystian Ambrose, and son Alex Ambrose. He

is also survived by his adoring grandchildren, Hunter, Brittany, Elliot, and Sebastian.

Visitation will be at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, May 20th followed by a graveside funeral

service at 2:00 p.m.

Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home and Gardens, 1591 Gadsden Hwy, Birmingham, AL, 35235.
