Herman Cornell Weston “Joe Black”
At 9:11 p.m. Nov. 9, 2020, Our Lord, Cherisher and Sustainer of all the Worlds returned our brother, father and friend unto himself.
“Joe Black,” as he was known to the world, was born Herman Cornell Weston on Feb. 3, 1946 in Montz, La. from the union of Anderson Weston and Irene Thomas.
Joe Black was a founding partner of AME Incorporated, established in 1978 in Norco, La. As a business owner for nearly 40 years, he made connections all over the world and helped thousands of people from all walks of life attain upliftment, employment, mentorship – and most importantly – supreme friendship.
If Joe Black gave you his word, you could take it to the bank! Joe Black was also a member of the U.S. Army, in which he served as platoon sergeant. He received honorable discharge from the U.S. Army.
Joe Black was preceded in eternal rest by his mother, father, two brothers, Elton Weston and Reginald “Reggie” Fobb; and one grandson, Parker Weston Jackson.
He leaves to carry on his legacy sisters Cynthia Coleman (Warren) and Tara Minton (Charlie); brother Gary O’Neal (Tania); son Patrick 2x Jackson (Keione x); daughters Stephanie Allen (Mark), Denean Weston and Kristal Terrell; and grandchildren Patrick, Peyton, Parrish and Paige Muhammad.
