Joey was an active parishioner at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church where he was a member of the church council. His faith was very strong and believed that God and his family were the most important things in his life. He was a wonderful provider, loved his family and was known as “Pa-Pa” to his grandchildren.
Joey loved cooking for his family and friends and having suppers in the shop. He mostly enjoyed making sausage and tasso which he shared with others. He loved playing his guitar and listening to all kinds of music. Most of all, Joey was a kind, loving and gentle soul who will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved him.
