Our condolences to Joey’s family, my husband and I both worked with Joey at Crop Insurance. I had many conversations with him over my years while working for Young Crop Insurance.
He was always willing to help.
Please find comfort in your memories of your dad, grandpa, uncle, brother and friend. RIP.
