Graveside services were held at Swallow Savannah Cemetery on Tuesday, July 21, at sunrise. Joseph Oswald answered the call of his country at age 17 and served in the United States Navy during World War II in the Pacific Theater. After being honorably discharged in 1946 at the end of the war, he began farming. In July 1950, Joseph married the love of his life, Janie Lucille Kirven, in Janie's hometown of Pamplico, SC. Together they built a thriving farm and produced three generations of SC farmers, as well as children and grandchildren working professionally throughout the US. Joe participated in many local and state agricultural groups and associations and particularly enjoyed the Salkehatchie, South Carolina, and National Cattlemen's Associations. His lifelong pursuit of agricultural best practices won accolades, including Conservation Farmer of the Year. Joe also enjoyed extensive travel with Janie with the SCDA Ag Study Tours and Western Livestock Journal tours visiting numerous states, farms and ranches. During the Western Livestock Journal's South Carolina Farm and Plantation Tour, Joe and Janie were proud to host 135 ranchers from across the country. Joe was predeceased by his wife, Janie; brothers, Homer, Maxwell, Nathan, and Johnston; sisters Sarah Margaret, Pauline, and Sue. Joseph is survived by brother William Benjamin of Allendale and sister Lottie Louise of Phoenix, AZ.

John Cooper, Anna Jane Bosler, Jayna Margaret Cooper, Joseph Caulder Oswald IV, Jacob Brewer Oswald, and Janie Cecile Oswald; and two great-grandchildren, Jack Bohan Cooper and Cecilia Anne Cooper.
