Obituary for JOSEPH ALEXANDER DENT

Joseph Alexander Dent, known to most as “Baby Joseph” was born to the late Eliza Gross Dent and Joseph Dent, Sr. on March 19, 1936. Joseph was educated in Calvert County public schools. Although he never married or had any children of his own, he was still known as a father, uncle and babysitter to a host of his nieces and nephews. Joseph worked at the Virginia Saw Mill from the age of 17 until he was injured on the job. When he was able to work again, he worked at the Warren Denton Oyster House and continued his employment there until retirement. Joseph was a longtime member of the Auxiliary at the Solomon’s Rescue and Fire Department. He could often be found in the kitchen keeping the dishes cleaned and the ladies smiling! His knack for prompting laughter whenever he was around, among his many other attributes will surely be missed by many! Joseph leaves to cherish his fond memories and will be missed by his four sisters, Mary Gross (Parran), Rachel Johnson, Catherine Johnson, and Elizabeth Graham; one brother, Wilbur Dent (Ann); Godchild, LaTrice Broome; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
