It was always a good day hanging with Joey. His witty intellect and sense of humor brought joy and happiness to everyone he touched. A good laugh and a dose of amusement was always in store. He enjoyed good conversation and personal interaction and always preferred the “old fashion way”. It didn’t matter if you were family, friend or a brief acquaintance, you could easily sense his welcoming spirit and genuine kindness.
Joey enjoyed classic movies, Pittsburgh sports, Sinatra and homemade hot sausage. He was an avid golfer but enjoyed a drink and a cheap cigar at the 19th hole “talking” about golf more than actually playing.
He was a special man who will be sorely missed and whose memory will always bring a smile to those who had the privilege of knowing him.
Joey loved his family and friends more than anything, but most of all, he cherished the love of his life, his wife, Eileen where they are now back together in eternal rest.
Friends will be received Tuesday from 3-7 p.m. and Wednesday 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at DEVLIN Funeral Home Inc., 806 Perry Hwy, North Hills. Mass of Christian Burial in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, St. Athanasius Church, Thursday at 10 AM.
