Joey was truly one of a kind. A loving father, brother, and good friend to many. If you didn't know him, you would by the end of the night. Joey always kept a smile and made sure to make others laugh. No matter the pain and every day struggles he faced, he always saw the good in everything. His children and grandchildren made his world go round. He did everything he could to always put others first. Even in death, he put others first and was able to be an organ donor. He loved to spend the day on the water. Building just about anything, grilling, and just listening to music as loud as he possibly could.
Joey will be missed by all who knew him. No matter how long, he was someone who made a lasting first impression, always.
The family would like to thank Dr. Ugo Ezema, and his staff at Terrebonne General CCU department and LOPA for their care. His amazing work family at Andrew's and Sons LLC. Chauvin Funeral Home and Holy Family Catholic Church.
