Joseph (Joe) Edward McGinnis, formerly of Bloomington, Indiana, passed away on Friday, July 5th, 2019. Joe was born in Bloomington, Indiana on July 31st, 1955, where he spent his childhood playing outside on the family farm. Joe graduated from Bloomington South High School in 1973 and worked for RCA and Whitestone for many years. One of his favorite pastimes included attending many St. Louis Cardinals games with his friends. Joe met the love of his life, Dianne (Stone) McGinnis, and after traveling back and forth from Bloomington to Cincinnati every weekend for many years, they married and settled in Cincinnati in 1995. While there, Joe devoted many years to Boy Scouts, helping his son, David McGinnis, grow and learn leadership, teamwork, adaptability, and the importance of God. Throughout these years, Joe found great joy influencing the youth through the Boy Scouts program. This past year, Joe and Dianne marked 24 years of marriage and retired to Englewood, Florida, where they found sun, sand, and relaxation, all while Joe was involved in a Corvette Club, Meals on Wheels, and their local church. Joe is a constant reminder that it doesn’t matter where you go in life, it is who you have with you along the way that truly matters. Joe is preceded in death by his parents, Freeman and Jean (Cooprider) McGinnis, and his brother, Randall (Randy) Charles McGinnis, all of Bloomington. He is survived by his loving wife, Dianne (Stone) McGinnis, their son, David McGinnis, and multiple nieces and nephews. Services will be held at Allen Funeral Home, 4155 S.
