|Let the memory of Joel be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Joey Poiriez, 27, born on October 3, 1986 and passed away on April 20, 2014. We will remember him forever. Please share your photos and memories.
"I never met Joey, but he was my idol growing up skateboarding. Id watch his video parts almost everyday to get pumped to skate. Id try copying his tricks & even clothing style. His style & fearlessness were incredible. I always thought he was underrated. With more time in the spotlight he would have easily been one of the top names recognized in skateboarding. I recently found out he had passed, & wanted to write this to give thanks to him for being largely responsible for inspiring the great times I had in skateboarding. Thank you Joey. Rip."

"where should i start?... my heart goes out to your family but this got me twisted too. We only knew eachother 2 years but it felt like i had known you in a past life your the only man that could see thru me. I remember the first time i seen you, you were just my type ..tall, with dark hair and a gentleman. ... I was so nervous the first time we talked i remember the first time you called my house and you asked me on our first date. That was the first time i got to see you skateboarding. I was impressed b/c i could tell how much time and dedication you put into your passion by how talented you were. That made me believe in you i knew you could of accomplished anything you truley wanted but i fell for you because you had morals and you were brought up right. I loved the way you cared for your sister and mother. Your respect for women to the way you never raised your voice to me made it hard to be apart from you. Whenever you texted me 911 get here ASAP i came runnin. And even the times i ran out of gas and you and frank swoop me up put gas in my car and you told me it didnt matter if i had money you just wanted my time. awww my jojo ! im gunna miss going to the casino with you, you R da only person that could make me laugh the whole drive bacc when i lost all my money. You were the only man allowed in my moms house and you were welcomed like family. You were the one i leaned on and even when i was wrong you still protected me never let others change your view of me. I miss watching you lay in my bed with all your tattoes while i scratched your head while we watched movies ...i cant breath or eat without you miamor, the pain i feel right now is worth it just to got 2 know your love i felt lucky 2 be your girl. i love you and il never forget you-stef"
"Joey this is such a shock, you were just at our home on April11th. I will always remember your sweet smile and gentle disposition. I still see you at my kitchen table eating spaghetti bolognese, and offering to help with the dishes. This is such a tragic loss to your family and those who loved you. There are no words that could ever console your loved ones! Just know we are praying for you and your beloved family! My daughter Stefani truly loved you and will miss you! We will attend the memorial for you! With our deepest sympathy, Stefani & Frannie"
"Joey, my cuddlekins.....I miss you so much and can't believe I never get to see you again...I think about you all the time, so many times I want to pick up the phone and call you. And every song and movie reminds me of you, damnit this is so hard. I know what we had was real and will never forget the good times we had together....the only thing that brings me peace is that I know the suffering is over for you,
And that I will get to see you in heaven someday. I never loved a guy as much as I loved you, you came into my life during a difficult time and your presence made me so happy...I could always be myself around you. I wish this was getting easier but it isn't,
I would do anything to see you one last time. I love you Joey. You will always have a piece of my heart."
"Ride on, little brother."
"We hadn't seen each other in years, but I always held a positive image of you. I was saddened to hear of your passing - you had extraordinary talent and commitment to your craft. My heart goes out to your loved ones, and this is one of those times where I hope there's something on the other side, so you can have moved on to something positive. We will remember you through your videos and our memories. Rest in peace."
"I still cannot accept that your not with us.
I keep waiting to see you come through the door, or maybe see you just hanging out on the couch. I don't want to believe your gone, so.. Your always gonna be with me in my heart and my thoughts. Your still here with us Joey, I'm not letting you go! You've been too much a part of my life. To me, you were my son, and you know I've told you that.
I love you and will keep thinking of you."
"You will always be here in our hearts Joey <3 Pam and Devon"
"Forever in our hearts, never forgotten RIP Joey"
"My dear Joey you are so loved. We are all missing you so much! You are forever in my heart my sweet baby boy."
