We will miss Joel's quick wit, dark sense of humor, and his incessant, annoying whistling and cartoon sound effects. Joel had a generous, loving, kind spirit, and was absolutely hilarious. Despite life's hardships, Joel kept faith in "Abba" God and was never shy to tell others, "Jesus loves you and so do I." Pallbearers: Phillip Torres, Matthew Palacio, Aaron Piedra, Davie Montano, Christopher Thatcher, Jurgen Bober-Noonan, Andres Padilla and John Watters. Honorary pallbearers: Julian Torres, Donovan Dunn, Nathanial Piedra, David Piedra, Joshua Piedra. Services will be held at Riverside Funeral Home, Los Lunas Tuesday Sept 17, 2019 at 1 pm.
