Joel Tison Reaves

Born July 4, 1955, passed peacefully October 18, 2020

A true Boggy Boy, Tison lived in and loved his city of Niceville his whole life. He exemplified what it means to be a gentleman and was well like by anyone he met. In his early years he was an exceptional athlete, competing and excelling in track and basketball, he even sang beautifully in chorus. Later he took an interest in martial arts and bodybuilding and maintained an impressive muscular figure. He worked for Okaloosa county water and sewer as a class A operator for more than 20 years. He took pride in everything he did, and to the best of his ability. He was a man of great character and moral fiber. He will be dearly missed by those he leaves behind.  Tison was married to his beloved wife Sharon DeBruhl Reaves who passed away in 2017.
