Joey marched to the beat of his own drum, some would say he ran more than marched. He had a love of hunting and fishing from an early age. His inner child always shone through with his attempts at comedy and love of gaming. He wore his heart on his sleeve, a romantic at heart and was willing to help anyone that needed it. He cherished his niece and nephew. Joey had many deep connections and relationships with people from all over.
He is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Melvin Barthel and Dale Vetsch, and cousin Tyson Kinney.
Joey is survived by his parents Steve and Marcia, Sisters Cassie (Jason) Dodds and Angie Knase. Nephew Graham and niece Finley Dodds.
