Joseph "Joey" John Mennit, Sr., 41, of Hurlock, Maryland passed away on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at his home.
Born in Salisbury, Maryland on December 8, 1975, he was a son of Carol Lawrence and Michael Mennit.
Joey attended the local schools and graduated from high school with honors and then went on to gain his bachelor’s degree.
On April 26, 2014 Joey and the former Amy Gullion were united in marriage.
Joey was last employed as a carpenter and was a very good one at that. He was a member of the Trinity Cathedral Episcopal Church in Easton.
Going fishing with his father and son was a highlight in Joey's life, also, cooking with Dakota, introducing Mia to music, having heart to heart talks with Catherine and most of all, being the proudest and loudest father on the sidelines at his children's sport games.
He was an avid Denver Broncos fan and never missed watching a game. Joey’s heart was in the state of Tennessee as that was his favorite place to vacation and his hope was one day to retire there.
Joey loved his family and will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Surviving him besides his parents and wife are children Catherine Ann, Mia Marie, Dakota Irene and Joseph John Mennit, Jr.; sisters Heather Sanchez-Mennit, Tracey Smith, Jennifer Wieland; brother, Scott Smith; step-mother Judy Mennit and best friend who he considered a brother, Shane Gift.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017 beginning 12 noon at Newcomb and Collins Funeral Home, P.A., Cambridge with Pastor Greg Powell officiating. Family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will be private.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Mennit Children's Fund, c/o Provident State Bank, 301 Crusader Road, Cambridge, MD 21613.
