Joseph (Joey) Scott Lovern.
April 21, 1982 - April 20, 2022.

Joey was preceded in death by his loving grandparents: R. (Bob) and June Stafford Lovern, and Clayton Eugene (Gene) and Pauline Painter Rhodes. He is survived by his loving daughter Lily Anne Lovern; his mother, Susan (Susie) Rhodes, his father Thomas Scott (Tommy) and mom Donna Lovern; his brothers: Richard Alan and wife Ettelie Lovern and Josh Long. He is also survived by an aunt and four uncles and their families: Pam and Mark Wood, Roger and Lisa Rhodes, Donald and Sharon Lovern, Bill and Toni Lovern, and David and Taryn Lovern; cousins: Michael Wood, Karyn Johnson, Christopher, Jonathan, Jeremiah, Ben, Matt and Jake Lovern. He is also survived by his best friend and brother, Christopher Fernandez.

Joey loved to go fishing, mountain biking, go tubing and hanging out with his best friends. He was an avid gamer and belonged to an awesome streaming community. Many members became part of his extended family over the years.

He worked at Carter's Cabinet Shop from the age of 16 until his medical condition prohibited him from working. Joey loved working with wood and being a trim carpenter. He took great pride in being one of the best.

He struggled his whole life with an AVM not knowing it until 2010. He thought he had won that war but on Monday night, he lost his last battle.
