Albert “Joe” Lockard, age 69, of Irvington, KY, passed away May 11, 2020 at the Breckinridge Memorial Hospital in Hardinsburg, KY.
He was born July 29, 1950, the son of the late Albert “Talc” Lockard and Octavia Ellen Bandy Lockard. He was preceded in death by his son, Joseph Eric Lockard and sister, Julia Faye Lockard.
Joe was a member of the Ekron Baptist Church and the Irvington Masonic Lodge # 868 F&AM. He was retired from the IGA in Irvington and previously worked for Frymire Equipment and currently Liter’s Quarry. He was a hard worker who always put his family first. He was a very giving and kind hearted man. Always willing to help in his community and asked nothing in return. He was very dependable and willing to serve selflessly and loved by many.
