Joseph Valencia

In Loving Memory

Joseph Thomas Valencia
Aug. 12, 1990 — March 20, 2022

Joseph Valencia was one of the best human beings in the world. He saw the absolute best in everyone he met, always lending a hand when needed.

Without ever trying he bestowed upon us all the gifts of love, friendship, peace and compassion.

We will mourn the loss of such a great man, son, grandson, brother, Uncle, nephew, cousin, friend: but through him we can only hope to take with us his best qualities. Striving to keep his memory alive with us all.

Joe loved to ride dirt bikes. He was so good he could’ve been a professional. He was good at everything he did from snowboarding like Shaun White to wake boarding like Nick Rappa. He was a natural talent. He loved going to the snow with friends and family just to watch the kids play.

He liked to go play airsoft and paintball in the woods till you couldn’t see anymore and wanted to keep playing. He loved to go out on the boat and do a battle royale till one of us fell off. Joe also loved to go slow and take his nieces and nephews on the tube till he was too tired to hang on anymore.

Joe loved his family and friends so much and was always there for them. Joey we love you and will miss you for the rest of our lives.

Joseph so loved his family and friends, his parents, Kim and Cedro; brothers, Chris and Nick; his sister, Trista; Grandma Darlene and Grandpa Chris;  sisters-in-law, Christina and Teanna; his nephew and nieces, Angelina, Christopher Jr., Adrian, Kimmarie, Isabella, Andrew and Jackson; aunt, Kelly; uncle, Greg; aunt, Kristine; aunt, Katie; aunt, Nora; aunt, Christie; aunt, Liz; uncle, Tizoc; uncle, Matt; cousins, Gabby, Gina, Michael, Justine/Vanessa, Manuel, James, Katelyn, Matthew, Mason, Ryan, Josh, Aurora, Nicole and Jaykub; and best friends, Evan and Bree Quetzal.

”The Broken Chain”

You left us peaceful memories,

Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

We love you, Joseph.
