SEVERIN, Joey William

Joey William Severin
Feb 11/78 - July 17/17
With heavy hearts we share with you the passing of an amazing soul who after an extensive battle with mental illness and addiction has finally found peace for his weary soul and the angels ushered him home

Joey was always a sensitive caring human in his youth he lived quite a spectacular existence, by which I mean no matter what life was throwing at him he excelled and persevered an athlete, scholar and community builder. Then came the one trauma that was the catalyst for the emergence of his mental illness and journey into addiction, he lost his father. It's grip so strong and the battle so fierce his maker decided his suffering must end and brought him home.

Although we are broken for our loss we find solace in his passing as we know he is now at peace free from all pain and surrounded by loved ones.

Joey was predeceased by his father, Joe Severin, his grandparents Ambrose/Julia Fodor & Anna Severin. Left here to carry-on and raise awareness Joey leaves two perfect daughters he truly loved with all of his heart and even though his path in life was not one they could walk with him on. CJ Russo and Shanna Dodman you are all the best of him ... he wants nothing more for than you to love yourselves and be happy and healthy.

Also grieving Joey's loss is his loving mother and stepfather Marie/David Boniface. May you find peace for he knew you loved him so, no mother should have to say goodbye to their child, strength be yours.

    My heart goes out to Joey's family. My son passed away 12 years ago. Their stories are similar. Mental illness and addiction. I miss him so, but as you have said, they are finally at peace. Wish love could have made him better. Keeping you in my prayers. Memories will live forever.....

    The beautiful obit clearly shows how much Joey was loved. "Donations" of time, love and compassion to others is so much more worthwhile than the dollar.

    Nobody was ever perfect and we've all made mistakes. I remember the memories from high school and playing baseball and basketball. Till we meet again brother, rest in peace.

    Deepest sympathy Marie, David, Tammy and extended family.
    I will always remember the good old days of Joey, John and Gary going to the rodeos with Aldon all dressed up to go sheep riding - so cute. Knowing he is at peace now hopefully will bring you some comfort during this difficult time. Our children are not supposed to leave us first.
    Hugs and prayers,
    Connie, John and Gary Jr Fox
    Rest in Peace Joey
