Condolences & Tributes

Celebrate Joey's life with a short message, photo or video!

Dear Ferguson family. I wanted to offer you my deepest sympathy on the loss of Joey. He was a fine student and a great young man to be around. I really enjoyed coaching him during his days as an ECG Hilltopper football player. He was always a team leader! I was very fortunate to share a lunch with Joey a few years ago and learn more about his interests with ATV's and motorcycle's. His passion was evident and it was fun catching up. Again so sorry for your loss. It was a privilege to know Joey.
