I am very saddened that Joey passed away. He was a smart and witty kid. I babysat for him and his sister when Joey was about four years old and Elizabeth was a baby. I knew Joey's dad and brothers from high school, and I worked with Joey's dad at General Products. Joey looks just like his dad. My thoughts and prayers are with Joey's wife, Elizabeth, his family, and friends.

I'll always remember Joey's sweetness. He seemed to enjoy the Ater reunions so much.
His pain is gone. His smile and his gentleness remain.
