  5. Joey was that one of a kind guy with a great smile. I worked with him at Providence for a number of years and every morning he and I would walk in and have that sheepish grin! He would look at me and say! ..Morning! Then we would smile, that was our mornings and after work we would just talk and hang out at times. Going to miss him a lot.

  6. Joey you were always the life of the party. I enjoyed You talk about your children and have very proud you were of your grandchildren.. Let’s not forget how much you used to joke around but it was all good because you were my Uncle Joey? You will be miss very much.
    You will never be forgotten love always Kim From the doghouse!

    I worked part time for Joey s dad Jim. First time i learned how to water ski was with Joey. I would let him drive my Honda 350 and he let me drive his corvette to the Texan to get lunch. , Must have been back in 71. Had many memories of him and those old days,

  8. I just found out that Joey went to a better place. Joey was good people. A straight shooter. He loved his family dearly. He was fun to hang out with and yes he always had a witty remark about something that needed to be said. God bless you Joey and your family.
