Joey was one of the sweetest men I ever knew. A simple man whose heart was big enough for everyone. It warms my soul to know he enjoyed and was loved by a wonderful family; his wife Lori, kids, grandchildren and 4 legged ones too. We had a lot of wonderful memories from when we were kids. Keep playing guitar and save us a seat in Heaven Joey !

Joe was my older cousin. He was always so kind to my parents and I’ll always remember him for that.
