Joseph was a beautiful and sensitive soul who could light up any room he was in. He was silly, fun to be around, and had an infectious smile. Joey also loved to dance and made friends wherever he went. Joey was a free spirit who loved skateboarding and had a passion for playing his guitar and pouring his heart into writing songs. He also enjoyed cooking, watching basketball, adding to his impressive sneaker collection, and vacationing with his family. Joey had a special connection with animals, particularly his cat Wallace. He will be greatly missed and forever loved by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
