He enters my thoughts almost daily and missing him doesn't end. He made me laugh. Joey you are still loved and cared about. asm

We shared a name and had some great laughs/times as well. He did have a way of making you laugh; was a good natural athlete too.

Joey was one-of-a-kind, a total original, that belonged to a very select group of total originals that I've met in my life. He was funny, daring, energetic, interesting, kind, and he always tested the bounds of convention. I would have loved to have seen the person he would have -- and should have -- become. Why he was taken so early is a question I still contemplate. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

You're still missed, Joey. "Oobaprabooba!"

Let's face it, nobody coud do th "peg board" like Joey. Pound for pound he was the strongest guy I knew. Who could forget that great laugh too; he was always a fun guy to be around no question.

Joey's locker was stacked with Marlboro boxes- no books.
An awesome friend of, which I told many stories about.

What about the sports assembly, Joey Knowles, Joey Knowles-6 times in a row. He broke almost every record from the softball throw to the 50 yard dash! Unbelievable friend and outstanding athlete!!

Joey and I grew up houses apart. I remember climbing over his back fence ( a split rail) when I was 6 in order to play on some contraption that went round and and round. We would pump the thing until we couldn't go any faster and then when we got good and dizzy- got off and lay on our backs watching the sky spin and laughing.

I've thought of Joey every June since graduation.

Joey was in my homeroom. He was funny, full of energy and very athletic.It was so sad when he passed away.I remember going to the funeral/wake and being overcome with emotion and sadness.I believe he passed away the summer we graduated.I could not believe someone so young and full of energy was now gone. He is missed. George

Joey was one of my best friends, so was his brother Rich. I will never forget them. I often think of them, motorcycles in the garage at grandma's house...
The news of their passing was devastating but I know God is with them. Our loss...
Rest in Peace, knowing I loved you both.

JOEY, JOEY, JOEY, WHERE ARE YOU? NO ONE REMEMBERS JOEY LIKE I DO! HE WAS MY BEST FRIEND GROWING UP IN SPLFD. ONE OF THE NICEST GUYS YOU WOULD EVER MEET. POUND FOR POUND ONE OF THE STRONGEST GUYS I EVER MET. NO ONE COULD BEAT HIM ON THE GYM PEG BOARD. WHEN  IT CAME TO THE PRESIDENT'S PHYSICAL FITNESS HE WAS OVER 100 PERCENT ON EVERY EVENT.

I REMEMBER PLAYING STICKBALL AND BASKETBALL AT MY GRANDMA'S  HOUSE ON ROBIN CT.  WITH EMET RUEDA AND RICKY MORRIS. WE ALSO USE TO PLAY POOL FOR HOURS IN HIS BASEMENT. I REMEMBER THE SLEEP OVERS AT MY HOUSE AND HOW HE USED TO LIKE PIZZA. HE WOULD ALSO INVITE ME TO HIS BEACH HOUSE DOWN IN TOMS RIVER. WE ALWAYS  HAD FUN AND A GREAT TIME. JOEY LOVED HIS CIGARETTES. I ALWAYS TOLD HIM TO STOP SMOKING. HIS FATHER WOULD GIVE HIM A CREW CUT IF HE CAUGHT HIM SMOKING.

I CAN'T FORGET HIS BROTHER RICKY WHO WAS MURDERED IN N.Y. HE WAS A GREAT GUY WHO LOVED TO FIX MOTORCYCLES FOR THE SPLFD. POLICE DEPT.HE ALSO HAD A BROTHER JEFFREY.

HIS PARENTS WERE GREAT PEOPLE.HOW DID THEY DEAL WITH THE LOSS OF TWO SONS? I CAN'T IMAGINE. I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT HIM AND WONDER WHAT KIND OF MAN HE WOULD HAVE BECOME? I AM SURE HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A WINNER!

JOEY, YOU BROKE MY HEART! I WILL MISS YOU FOREVER AND FOREVER. YOU WERE ONE IN A MILLION BUDDY! LOVE ALWAYS...............................JESS
