Joseph Issac Parham 65, was born February 20, 1956 in Baltimore, Maryland to the late Joseph Issac Parham Sr. and the late Shirley Iola Parham. Joseph was the oldest of three siblings who were raised in a loving home with their family dog Brownie. When
Joseph was thirteen years old, he and his siblings tragically lost their father Joseph Sr.
He received all of his education in the Baltimore City Public School System. As a young man, he was an avid animal lover and he loved cars. Joseph was a socialite who enjoyed attending parties, proms, and other social events.
Soon after high school, Joseph began full time employment as a Factory Laborer. Most of his time working in a factory was spent at the Sweetheart Cup Company, Inc. where he met and dated Rebecca Simon. In 1980 they began a long loving relationship, and after two years they welcomed their first child Pamela Arlene Parham. Six years later, they welcomed their second child Tiesha Sherrel Parham.
Joseph loved family dinners, playing the lottery, washing his car, and spending time with his friends. He had close relationships with his cousins, including the late James Bernard Macer. Joseph also enjoyed assisting his first cousin, the late Rodney Parham with on the road deliveries. Joseph was proud of his two beautiful daughters and enjoyed their special milestones, including graduations and birthdays.
Joseph was preceded in death by his brother Timothy Parham. He leaves to cherish his memories: His two daughters, Pamela Parham and Tiesha Parham Hill (Daron), one brother David Parham, one sister Sherilene Parham Manning (Carlos), one nephew Christian Carter, one niece Darlene Parham, and five grandchildren Denasia, Terrell, Daron Jr., Atlas, and Phoibe.
