Friends remember couple killed in 516 crash

BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) -

Camie and Stephen Joyner were on their way home with exciting news when their lives were cut short in a tragic crash on 516 Friday.

"They found out last week they were pregnant with another kid and they were headed to the doctor in Savannah to confirm it," said Kerry Terrell. "They were headed home from there."

Their 3-year-old daughter Dakota survived. The news of the accident came as a shock to Terrell, who worked with Stephen at the Savannah ports as a crane operator.

"We were actually at work when we heard about it," said Terrell. "The night shift was already there, nobody could believe it. We were concerned about Dakota, of course."

Stephen was known by many as a family man who loved his wife and little girl dearly.

"Stephen wasn't a man of many words," said Terrell. "He didn't say a whole lot, but you can see the pride in him about his family. His family meant so much. Every day he would come in and say, 'That baby girl, that baby girl can keep me up all day. I can't even sleep.' I said 'buddy you better cherish it. You better cherish it.'"

While Terrell is saddened by Stephen's death, he is glad he is in a better place with his soul mate.

"Anyone that came in contact with him, liked him. Camie was the same way. They were a perfect match," said Terrell. 

Carrie and Stephen were laid to rest at the Corinth-Leefield Cemetery. Dakota is being cared for by Carrie's parents. The family requests that memorial contributions be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Southeasterly breezes may allow this fog to make it further inland than the past few days – this evening. Areas o...
