Joey took great pride in being a Lance Corporal and a cryptologic Korean linguist in the United States Marine Corps. He completed his Korean Language coursework at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA and was assigned to C Company, 1st Radio Battalion in Camp Pendleton in San Diego, CA. He was a member of the Church of Christ in Vista, CA.
Joey had a great love for his family and friends, the outdoors, foreign languages, and his two bulldogs, Opha Mae and Semper Fido. He never missed the opportunity to make someone smile, by joking, teasing, or giving a kind word or goofy smile. The impression he left on those around him is something that will not fade.
Joey’s infant daughter Tatum Rose often looks so much like her daddy & is loved by many.
Beloved son, brother, husband, grandson, nephew, and cousin. We miss you Joey!
