Joey Dan Fuqua was born in Milan, Tennessee to Roy Dan and Cleo Catherine Fuqua on December 7, 1937. He was a Baptist.

After World War II, his family began moving west and eventually put down roots in Penwell, Texas. He attended Crockett Junior High and graduated from Odessa High School in 1955. He briefly attended Odessa College and eventually joined the United States Army. He served two years active duty and served four years in the reserve.

After retirement he enjoyed maintaining his flower beds and caring for his lawn. He also enjoyed woodworking. A few years after retiring the most enjoyable times of his life began as he gained the titles, “Pa Joe” and “Papa.” He loved spoiling and spending time with his grandchildren. He was their teacher and biggest supporter. His greatest joys in life were his wife, children, and all his grandchildren.
