Bring Our dear Joey home & burial

Family remembers Joey 

Joey is with Jesus now. Words cannot say how much we all miss him.

On May 8th, 2020 Joey was on his way home from work when he saw a car accident on the road ahead. He stopped to assist and see if he could help anyone and somehow was shot. The Tempe AZ police are still investigating what happened.  Suspects were arrested at the scene.  Many unknown questions remain at this time.

Joey's family in San Diego, Arizona, Seattle, Chicago, and Philadelphia are grieving this tragic event. The family deeply appreciates any who can and wish to help with the many arrangements to come in the next few weeks. We would like to have Joey come rest with his surviving mom, dad, brothers and sisters in San Diego.
Our prayers to all, thank you.
Please note this page will be updated as any new information arises and investigations bring more facts.

UPDATE:  What we thought would not be possible is happening thanks to the generosity of all of you.  We are so blessed to be able to be moving Joey home this week, where he will be laid to rest at Eternal Hills in Oceanside, CA.    We never imagined having to do this and we are so grateful to all of your support, its unbelievable. Joey will be close by now so we will be able to visit him.

Thank you so much.
