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.

UPDATE June 10:
We apologize for the delay in updates, it has been a rough few weeks. Joey was laid to rest the last week of May. We have been able to visit him daily and we are so unbelievably grateful to your support to have brought him home to CA so we are able to talk to him. We know he's not actually there (we aren't completely crazy) but to have his remains close by and his resting place near by is more than we hoped for.

A small group of only family and some very close friends had a 'celebration' to remember and talk about Joey on May 31st. It was very emotional and we just cant thank you enough for all your donations, love and support. We are working through this day by day and the outpouring of support is a glimmer of hope for the world in the midst of such chaos.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
The DeLegge Family
