Obituary for Joseph Aaron Owens

Joseph Aaron Owens, also known as JD, was born on August 21, 1998 to his parents Leonia Owens and Michael Herron. Joseph departed this world on March 11, 2024.

Joseph absolutely loved the outdoors. Whether it was fishing, swimming, or grilling out on the riverbank with family and friends. He’s probably been to every watering hole there is in Pensacola and Cantonment. He was always the one in the tree or on the swing ready to do a backflip or some trick for smiles. Ready, Set, Go! And we would be ready to video or take a picture.

He had a large interest in cars, motorcycles, dirt bikes, and enjoyed working on them. He loved dogs and had quite a few throughout his lifetime. He was very caring and enjoyable, loving, fun to be around, laid back, up for anything, genuinely happy soul. He’d be ready to go at any moment but also he thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the porch with special friends and family; and listening to some good music.

Joseph was one of those few born into this harsh world that realized real quick and at the early age, that life wasn’t fair and that his life was going to be what he, himself was going to make of it. Joseph had no choice. He had to learn and provide life for himself quickly. He, Joseph, is the epitome of perseverance.

He's with God now, he's been set free.

The service will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. at Trahan Family Funeral Home. The visitation for friends and family will begin at 12:00 p.m.
