Joseph Gary Lawrence

September 4, 1988 ~ April 14, 2021 (age 32)



Joseph, beloved Father, Son, Brother, Uncle, Nephew, Cousin and Friend.  

Joey came into and left this world too early. He was born a preemie in Long Branch NJ weighing 3 pounds and 14 ounces.  Joseph moved with his family to Columbia Maryland at the age of 9. There he could be found with his brother Billy searching for critters, playing football, basketball and night time capture the flag. He attended Long Fellow Elementary and Wilde Lake High School. 

J first and foremost loved his family. His daughter Zoe meant the world to him. He loved going on adventures with Zoe, his niece Hailee and best friend Timmy. Joseph loved fashion and showing off his kicks! He had a great sense of humor, enjoyed spending time with friends, and schooling us in poker and fantasy football.   

Joseph is survived by his Mother Susan, Father Gary, Brother William, Daughter Zoe, her Mother Amina, Niece Hailee, Aunts Kathy, Karin and Rosanne, Uncles Paul and Steve. He will be missed by his cousins Kirsten Steven Sal Paige and Thomas and all his extended family and friends.

The celebration of Joey’s life will be held on Wednesday April 21, 2021 from 10:30 am -12:30 pm  with a funeral service taking place at 11:30 am, immediately followed by the graveside service at 1 pm.
