Just a few days ago, our friend, Joey Gemar passed away in a horrible tragedy.

Both Derrick and I grew up with Joe and went to school with him for many years. I had many classes with him and always considered him a friend growing up. He always made everyone laugh and was as energetic as they come.

I took one single photo of him at a wedding  just a year and a half ago. At the time, Joey asked if I would take a picture of him since he didn’t have any professional pictures of himself since he graduated high school. Had I known what was to be, I would have taken a million more.

Thanks for always making us smile, Joey. We’ll see you on the other side.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Gemar family during this difficult time. If any of you need ANYTHING, just let me know.

    I read about this tragic story in the paper, but it wasn’t until I saw this picture that I recognized him. I met him once on New Years, he introduced himself rhyming, “Hey broseph, I’m Joseph, the most explosive, from the west coast-eph”:) I could tell right away he was the type of guy that just liked to put a smile on someones face. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Gemar family and friends!

  • I am so sorry for your loss.

  • ((((HUGS)))) I cannot imagine, I am so sorry for your loss!
