At a young age, he moved to Erie , Pa. to live with his father until he joined the U.S. Air Force of which he served four years.   He later returned to Erie where he was employed as a Youth Director at The Martin Luther King Center for 10 years, a Machine Operator at Hammermill Paper company  for 14 years, and at the Performance Casting Foundry where he retired in 2006 after 17 years of employment. Soon after, he returned to Uniontown.

Joey was a member of Mt. Olivet Baptist Church and loved all kinds of music and had a record and album collection to prove it! He was always on the dance floor and loved to sing. He was always ready for a good time and was truly the life of the party.  More than anything, he loved spending time with his family and friends. He was like a father-figure to every young person he met.  He never met a stranger and everyone he met, he called friend.  He will truly be missed by us all.
