It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that our lovely lovely Joe has been taken away from us in a car accident on Sunday in Bolivia. This was five days before he was due home from the trip of a lifetime in South America with some of his best friends.
The Sam West Foundation was set up in memory of Sam West, to promote awareness, diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues affecting children, young adults and their families, and to advance the education of teenagers in music and the arts. Joe went to school with Sam and this was a cause close to his heart.
Joey was the kindest brother, the most wonderful son and a loyal, loyal friend. He will be remembered always and will live on through all of us.
