Joey was born and raised in the East Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia into an Irish Catholic family and was very proud of his Irish heritage. He attended Visitation BVM Church and school and there developed many lifelong friendships. Joey followed in his family's footsteps by working as a carpet installer. He loved simple things like Philadelphia sports teams (especially football and the Eagles), watching wrestling and candy. His greatest joy came from his family. He loved them and they loved him. Joey will be remembered for his kind heart, which he wore on his sleeve, and he will be missed tremendously by all who knew and loved him.
