Big Joey

His smile was genuine
And his eyes so sincere
His word was set in stone
In a world of great arrears
He shrugged off drama
With his smoothest of ways
And his casual quiet sense
Was welcomed every day
He was a strong quiet man
So charming in his way
He would stroll into the house
With a smile like sun’s rays

A blessing to those befriended
And a mentor to most
He was a trucker for life

And drove from coast to coast
It's been since 1996
Since last, we said goodbye
But etched upon each of us is
A part of him that never dies
