When I first started at the Pocket Sandwich Theater, I was a little more high strung and less open with others than I am now. Joey was one of those who always made me feel comfortable at work, and made me smile with cheesy jokes (including saying “Okay, so (queso), what you want?” every time someone ordered a side of queso. Heard it so many times, and loved hearing it every time. We had the same sense of humor, and was fun to hang out with.
And I will always admire how he handled his misfortune. He did not get angry and he did not give up. That will always come to mind whenever my illness becomes a burden. Thank you, Joey.

Joey and David Garcia came into my business, Pocket Sandwich Theatre, one day several years ago and applied for jobs. Little did I know how much we would come to love them and their lovely family. What a pair! It’s hard for me to imagine one without the other and it saddens me. We love you, Joey, and will miss you so much. We were blessed to know you.

That mustache. I worked with him at the pocket years ago and I always complimented and talked about his mustache. He would tell me how he got it to stand out straight from his nose— His miracle tricks to make his facial hair look great.

Years later, David told me he made up 1/2 of his mustache regimes to pull my leg. 🤣🤣 that’s probably my favorite memory of him. I was .... a little gullible.

Watching the boys grow up together through school, scouts and bowling was a blessing. Joey brought joy and friendship to all who knew him. We will miss him.
