Joseph Harris Stonestreet IV was born at home in Barnesville Maryland on January 10, 1930. He was the son of Joseph Harris Stonestreet III, and Mae Montgomery. He attended Poolesville High School and later joined the U.S. Army. After leaving the Army he attended Catholic University in Washington D.C. where he graduated with a degree in Architecural Engineering. While stationed at Fort Knox he met the love of his life, Doris Lee Tynan. He worked for the D.C. government as an architectural specifications writer, before retiring to continue his career at associated builders, inc. in Hyattsville, Maryland. Mr. Stonestreet was especially proud to have carved the seal of the President of The United States of America for the innaugurations of Ronald Wilson Reagan, George H.W. Bush, & William Jefferson Clinton, among other scultures and paintings.
His family was always his first priority. When time allowed he was an avid golfer, amateur photographer, stamp collector, ballroom dancer and hunter. Besides writing a textbook for Methods and Materials, he penned his own biography. He enjoyed geneology, and had traced the Stonestreet family back to the early 1600's in Sussex County England.
His family and friends remember him for his kindness, sense of humor, Christianity, and never ending patience, which is a good thing, cinsidering his eight children, twenty grandchildren, and thirteen great-grandchildren, all of which he was very proud.
Joseph Harris Stonestreet IV is predeceased by his brother L.W. Puglisi and his sister Virginia Mae Swink.
