Joey loved to hunt and fish. He was a true Louisiana Sportsman. He could tell you hunting stories that would make your side hurt with laughter. Joey could tell you stories of the biggest buck he bagged all the way to the one that got away. He was like a spoiled child with all of his “man toys.” Joey loved to grill and cook; his gumbo, steaks and deer meat were the best you’d ever eat.
Joey was a hard working man and worked for many years as a welder. He could weld and make many beautiful things with iron and steel. His work was truly amazing. He loved to do home improvement projects and was always piddling outside with something. Joey loved his dogs, especially Rosie. They shared a special bond, from playing in the living room to Joey riding Rosie in the back of the ranger; they were inseparable. He also loved his yellow black mouth curdog, Kate Dagger, better known as K.D. Joey would always sing to her, “I got a wife and a curdog too, my wife don’t love me but my curdog do!” Above all this Joey adored his family. He loved nothing more than being a “paw paw” to his grandsons, a daddy to Jodi and Joey, and a husband and best friend to his wife, Connie. Joey was a provider and protector and always put his family first. He always said, “when one of our phones ring, all of our phones ring.” We are family, together we stand and together we will be.
We Love You and will forever miss you until we meet again.
Connie, Jodi and Joey Lee
