Joey was educated in the Accomack County Public School system. He was not afraid of work and would try just about any job. Joey worked many different types of jobs, from an exterminator, a golf course groundskeeper, flipping cars (even some that didn’t start), to his last place of employment at Walmart as a Stock Clerk.
Joey lived life to the fullest. He loved traveling, watching and playing sports, listening to music and singing, gambling, cars, spending time with friends and family, and sharing and debating with all of us on Facebook. Joey was truly a happy and giving soul whom, if he had it and you needed it, it was yours. He lived every moment, in the moment.
