When he returned from the army he married Rosalind Cardinale from Patterson on January 27 th , 1968 and lived in Patterson where they raised four children: Christine, Lisa, Debbie, and Kent. Joey owned and operated the Western Auto store on Park St. in Patterson for over 25 years, and if you grew up in the late 70’s and 80’s in Patterson, there is a good chance that you rode one of the bikes that he put together by hand, used a piece of his sporting equipment, or ate his candy or chips which he sold from his glass encased counter. He was always there to help people with appliances, lawn mowers, or hardware. When he closed the store, he worked for his brother in law, Jeffrey Cardinal, at Cardinal Lumber, where he was a much sought after consultant and remained there until his


During his long life in Patterson, Dad was a respected and valued member of the community. He was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church where he was a 4 th degree member of the Knights of Columbus for over 50 years, and was once a former Grand Knight. With the KC’s he bowled and played softball and was instrumental in their famous chicken barbecues and other charity endeavors. He also helped coach little league and Dixie Youth baseball.

He was loved by many and a friend to all, with an incredibly big heart and infectious laugh. In his younger years, he enjoyed cooking on Sundays—best known for his gumbo and fried chicken—and when something was good he would exclaim: “Close Dat Door!” He instilled in each of his children a love for the Saints, and win or lose, he would sit in his living room surrounded by family and friends and root them on. He saw the first ever Saints’ kickoff run back for a touchdown and became a life-long fan. He also enjoyed traveling, and his yearly, epic family vacations became the stuff of legend and left his family with a lifetime of memories.

In his later years, he enjoyed playing poker with his son and the entire Teche Poker Club where he was a past champion and player favorite. Joey also enjoyed movies, even though he could never remember any actors name and his children had to decipher who and what he was talking about, yet was well versed in politics and the issues of our time, always longing for Jesus to come and straighten things out.Joey was a simple man and faith-filled servant of God. One could set their moral compass by him and they would never be led astray. He was loving without being judgmental, forgiving without restraints, and giving without conditions. He was a shining example on how to live a Holy life.
