His favorite job was Daddy Daycare, bringing joy to his kids and many others. Joey loved hard work and never minded getting his hands dirty. Joey lived his life out loud, he never let a moment pass him by. He flowed with this adventure called life wherever it took him with shining blue eyes and a smile a mile wide. Always the first to lend a helping hand, share a laugh, or give a hug, his heart knew no bounds. He loved to live and lived to love. Family was his greatest treasure; he loved his mama and daddy and was so proud to be a part of his huge family. He had a way of making you feel at home. A gentle soul to all beings and still, so strong a man. Joey leaves behind his loving and adoring wife, LaTrelle.
