Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Joseph Paul Setvin Sr., 72

Joseph Paul Setvin Sr., age 72, of Jacksonville, Arkansas passed away on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. 

He is survived by his wife of 51 years Marlene (Carroll) Setvin; daughter Kimberly Elliott (Vince); son Joseph P. Setvin Jr.;  grandsons Cameron Setvin, Kristopher Setvin, and Matthew Elliott; two great grandchildren Slayton and Sophia Setvin;  two brothers John Setvin (Linda) and Richard Setvin (Gloria).

He was preceded in death by his parents Joe and Floretta Setvin; two brothers James Setvin and Michael Setvin; a sister Judith (Setvin) Billiter.

Joe served our country in the U.S. Army for four years in Korea and Germany. After his time in the service, Joe went to work as an auto body technician, a skill he had learned from his father.  Joe took pride in his work, you could say he was a perfectionist.  He worked long hard hours to provide a good life for his family. After almost forty years in this line of work he retired in 2006.  Joe was a member of Second Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Arkansas and served in the Parking Lot Ministry until his body began to fail him. Joe was loved by all who met him. He was a people person and never met a stranger. He was loved much and will be missed greatly.

A Celebration of Joseph’s life will be held on Monday, October 15, 2018 at 11 A.M. at  Second Baptist Church, 1117 North James Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076.  

Arrangements are under the trusted direction of A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400.
