Joey was a hardcore LSU fan. Purple and gold were his favorite colors, as they showed his Tiger pride. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and generally being outdoors. He was an extremely intelligent individual who could take electronics apart and place them back together again. Joey also used his abilities to engineer and design prototype chillers for industrial factories. He would often send his family pictures of the prototypes he would build, with comments of what he’d accomplished. Joey was also a family man, he loved his family immensely and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with them. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
