You are so very loved, the times I've seen you at family get togethers, were also so special you were and always be in our hearts, your memory for me is a man filled with joy and happiness, and just made everyone enjoy your presence. Just a true genuine example of love. And truly one of the best buddies Julian will ever have. Our heart aches at your untimely passing, I believe we will all meet again in heaven, at peace with you. We all love you and will never let your memory leave our broken hearts. In Jesus name I pray.

You were my best friend in 3rd grade man. You taught me how to play football at recess and we would always play at your house in the yard. You were someone I wish I had grown up with. Even after I moved back to Chicago years later now, you welcomed me as if I had never left. I’m glad I got to talk to you a couple more times now that we’re grown and I’m glad I got to celebrate your birthday with you this past summer. I owe you a pizza and some beers from last summer. I promise I’ll pay you back. Rest easy up there Joey.

Rest up my guy, we weren’t really the closest of closest friends but I’ll never forget the times we chilled back in East Leyden . You made me feel wanted in the circle when no one Else wanted to talk to me. I’m going to remember that laugh and smile Forever my guy . Until we meet again ... another real one gone to soon

Ive worked with Joey at Loews Hotels in which seems like forever. He shared so much of his young life with me. Would ask my opinion on things & tell me Im cool for my age. Our last night working together, he left before me & he said "I love you mama Dee, (that's what they called me) I'll see you tomorrow." Tomorrow never came..........😥😥😭

I am so grateful to have known Joey. I’m going to miss his kindness, contagious laugh, big smile, and crazy curls so much. He lit up any room he walked into. Joey was an amazing friend and little brother to me for many years. Whenever he came over my grandma always told me he was the only boy that she trusted/felt comfortable with because he was always so respectful and sweet. Joey was there for me through some hard times. We always picked each other up when we were down. I’ll never forget the days we would sit by my pool and grill or the nights we would have long talks about what we thought were “problems” back in the day. I would do anything to hear him yell “JESS!” and embrace me in a big bear hug one last time. I’ll cherish him and our memories in my heart forever. Gone way too soon, but never forgotten.

Joey.. you were like a brother to me you picked me up when I was down and made sure I was okay when I was in trouble. You always pushed me to be my best and never let me forget it. I will forever cherish our memories the laughters and disagreements over sports. You were a selfless being and put everyone before you and you were the person everyone wanted to be around.. thank you for everything I love you Double00

Joey was the most supportive friend you could ask for. Anything you were a part of, Joey was there to show support. He was everyone’s biggest fan.

Looking back, Joey was one of the happiest people I’ve ever met. He was always laughing, always smiling, always taking in the moment. We all can learn from Joey in that regard.

Joey, this next fight is for you and Tony.

Still remember the first time I met little Joey. I was in my yard, he was running out in his and stopped, grabbed the chain link fence separating us and stared at me. I'm sure I said something stupid like, "hey little buddy!" I didn't know then that my new neighbors moving in would become family. We shared many birthdays, holidays, and graduations together.
Years of playing football with Robert, Niko, Joey, Dexter and Ernie across the Espejo, Provido, and Ramos frontyards. We all shared our love of the game, the Bears, and misery when they lost. We always made 4th of July epic, we lit up that alley for hours. Our door was always open for Joey and Niko to come over to play video games with my nephew Dexter. Playing kickball at Hester with Joey's cousins, aunts, and his mom Sarah on summer nights. Countless memories of us just enjoying each other's company.
We were all proud to see Joey grow into his own, he valued family over everything. He loved his dog, Blue and was heart broken when she passed.
I had the privilege of being a part of a lot of great memories and I was looking forward to my daughter getting to know her Uncle Joey.
I will forever be grateful for Joey and Niko and the Ramos's for being there for Dexter and my family.
Stay strong Ed, Sarah, Danny, Niko, and Alyssa. We will always be there for you and will continue to honor Joey's memories.

Till next time Joey. We will eventually have "Nothing but pure smiles and great conversation" again.

Joey was such a cool laid-back guy, I fell in love with his character the first 5 minutes he was around. Momma sara and pops did such a great job raising him, very well mannered and was very intelligent with a great smile. We had such a great time before he went to Vegas that night he almost lost track of time to catch his flight. Brought nothing but good positive vibes. A true Angel, glad to have been blessed with his presence. Rest up Joey!

I love you so much bro. We always were talking but it was hard to find the time to always meet up, our schedules were so different. But you made it clear it was always love, and when we did get together there was nothing but smiles. You probably don’t know but you helped me through some of my darkest times.

When I was 9 I knew it was my grandmother’s time was coming soon. The night my grandmother died I was at your house and you took my mind off of a lot of things. I’ll never forget you brother, you changed my life.
