Joseph loved life.
Joseph always lit up the room each and every time he entered, with his infectious smile and laughter. His charm and confidence were noticed early on in his life, As a baby, Joseph would sing along with the church choir to his heart's content and was not shy one bit.
Joseph was adventurous and enjoyed swimming as a child and into his adult years, he would throw backflips into the pool every chance he got. Joseph loved music, he always knew the best songs, the best artists to listen to. He loved dancing and if he wanted to dance, he simply would turn on the stereo and show off his moves.
Joseph was loved very much, and his caring heart reflected in the relationships he built with others throughout his life. At such a young age he knew the importance of family. Joseph would make time to visit family and friends, especially when they were ill, if they needed help or just needed a friend. You could always count on Joseph to brighten your day, to give you encouragement and to give you his undivided attention.
Joseph knew time with those you love is important and he made sure to show up and invite people over. If you had the pleasure of being invited to one of Joseph’s fish fries then you know that he was also a great cook.
Joseph showed an interest in sports early on, he would watch games as a child and was always ready to learn the ins and outs of each sport. You could count on Joseph wearing a jersey of his favorite athlete, he had a large collection of jerseys and sports memorabilia. Everyone who knew Joseph knew he loved talking sports. He was an exceptional athlete, every sport he played he excelled at.
But. Joseph’s passion was boxing and everyone who knew him knew how much heart he put into it. With love and gratitude to the late Jim Johnson, Jake Valencia, boxing coach, mentor, and at times a father figure to Joseph. Your love and compassion for Joseph was obvious to all. Luis Gutierrez, boxing team, and boxing community for their love and support of Joseph throughout his career and through this difficult time.
