Justice for Joey


On November 2, 2020 our world was turned completely upside down. The light and love of our lives, Joseph Angelo Failla,  was found in critical condition and left fighting for his life. It is believed that our beloved Joey was a victim of a suspected hit-and-run accident, but this incident is still undergoing investigation. Devastatingly the injuries sustained were too much for his body to bear.  After several days of fighting, it is with shattered hearts that we must soon say goodbye to this beautiful soul that we all love so immensely. 

Currently Joey is on life support and awaiting a procedure that will allow his organs to be donated. 

Due to the unexpected circumstances, ongoing financial strain of the COVID-19 pandemic, and various medical expenses, the Failla family does not have the necessary funds to give Joey the services he surely deserves. We are reaching out to friends and loved ones to aid in our quest to lay him to rest the way he deserves. Your gracious donations are extremely appreciated and will be used to help the family with funeral and wake services.

Joey is truly one unique and exceptional soul. He is an outstanding brother, friend, uncle, and son. He lit up EVERY single room he walked into, and was sure to leave everyone smiling and laughing. There are truly no words to express the weight of this loss. To say he will be missed is an understatement. 

Viewing and funeral arrangements have not yet been finalized - details will be shared as soon as they are available. We ask that you keep the Failla family in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely difficult time...
