In Memory of






Obituary for Joseph Thomas "Joe Cool" Revels

“When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.”

Joseph Thomas Revels was born on September 4, 1961 to Anna Mae Revels Savage and the late Samuel Joseph Collier. God gently called him home from labor to reward on Saturday, November 11, 2023 at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional, surrounded by his family.

“Joe,” “Joe Cool,” and “Cool,” as family and friends affectionately called him, received his formal education in the Worcester County Public Schools System. He was employed by various companies and individuals over the years, but was best known as a disc jockey and superior car, boat, and yacht detailer. Joe Cool always took pride in his work and provided excellent customer service. In later years, as his health declined, Joe Cool did odd jobs for the elderly and those less fortunate.

With all his heart, Joe Cool loved the Lord. At an early age, he gave his life to Christ and never shied away from talking about the goodness of God. Quoting scriptures often, Joe Cool read and knew the Bible!

Joe Cool loved to fish, listen to music, and talk on the telephone, but this was all unmatched to his love for spending time with his family. He always checked on his family, especially his parents and siblings. If anyone in the family did not feel well, Joe Cool would check on them until they felt better. Those who knew and loved him fondly recall good times with Joe Cool and that he would give you his last. He will be sorely missed.

His father, Samuel Joseph Collier, and stepfather, Calvin W. Savage, preceded Joe Cool in death.

Joe Cool leaves to cherish his memories: his mother, Anna Mae Savage of Pocomoke City, MD; a fiancée, Tymesha Schoolfield of Pocomoke City, MD; siblings, Marvis Holden of Salisbury, MD, Darnell Revels, Timmy Revels, both of Pocomoke City, MD, Stephen Collier (Shyrleen) of Salisbury, MD, Rodney Collier of Dover, DE, Renae Collier of District Heights, MD, Lisa Collier Purnell (Doug) of Delmar, MD, and Oliver Collier (Kimberly) of Linden, NJ; one aunt, Rosalee Melenedez (Daniel) of Pocomoke City, MD; five uncles, William Collier, Sr. of Pocomoke City, MD, Willie Rubel of Salisbury, MD, Robert Revels (Addie) of Temperanceville, VA, Calvin Revels of Snow Hill, MD, and Alvin Revels of Ocean City, MD; a special little lady who he loved like a daughter, Johnece Armstrong; two longtime friends, George Handy and Willie Hope; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Sorrowfully submitted,
The Family
