Joey or Joe as he was known to most was loved by all who met him. He worked at Acuity Brands lighting company for 42 years and was an active member of Starrsville Church for over 45 years. Joey’s faith in God was the centerpiece of his life, and he faithfully served his church in every capacity.
Joey was a skilled musician, carpenter, gardener and mechanic, among many other talents. He enjoyed fishing, baseball, football, history and spending every moment of available time with his wife and family. Joey never met a stranger and was friends with everyone he knew. He never missed an opportunity to help someone in need.
After a brief, courageous and quiet battle with cancer, during which he remained as optimistic and uplifting as ever, he passed away peacefully with his wife Janet holding his hand.
