    Such a beautiful tribute to a wonderful Man. Joey was kind and sensitive. He was the protector of those he loved and always willing to help—especially with the added bonus of spending time with his favorite people; family and friends! Words cannot express how much this extraordinary man will be missed. He meant the world to so many people. I sincerely believe he is now one of Heaven’s special Angels and he will continue to watch over and protect those he loved! I am so very fortunate to be your Aunt. God Bless you my sweet Joe!

  4. Jud Roberts says:

    I have many fond memories fishing with Joe and all the Nagels at Long Lake in Canada. Joe was a very good fisherman and loved his family. I remember the time I was using his Dad’s new filet knife and accidentally knocked it off the table into the trash. We searched tirelessly for it and Joe finally found it. We all had a lot of fun reminding me to be more careful.

    Thank you to everyone who have been there to support us through this very difficult time. It is never easy to lose someone you love and even harder when it is your child.

Our love for Joey will never die. We will remember and cherish every moment we were blessed to have him in our lives. And, through the days and years ahead we will do everything we can to support April, Maddie and Gabby, to help ease their pain and to keep the beautiful memories of their daddy alive in their hearts.
