Joseph Dunlap

March 25, 1960 — January 17, 2024

Joseph "Joey" Dunlap, aged 63, passed away peacefully on January 17, 2024, in Greenville, South Carolina. Born on March 25, 1960, in Bayshore, New York, Joey was known for his intelligent mind, adventurous spirit, and handy skills that he applied to every aspect of his life.

Joey was the brother to Linda, Laura, Paula, Kathi, Denise, Diane, and Theresa, and held fond memories of his late siblings, James and Rosemary. His family was his pride and joy, including his ten nephews, two of whom predeceased him, and his adored grandnieces. Joey's role as the fun-loving uncle was one he treasured deeply, and the countless hours spent playing and creating memories with his nephews and grandnieces will be remembered with warmth and gratitude.

Joey's passions extended beyond his professional life. He had an exceptional talent for customizing cars, a hobby that showcased his creativity and mechanical prowess. His love for boating on Lake Keowee was more than a pastime; it was a reflection of his love for adventure and the tranquility he found on the water. Joey's zest for life was infectious, and he never missed an opportunity to embark on new experiences or to share them with those he loved.

Described by those who knew him best as intelligent, Joey was a fount of knowledge and a problem-solver. His adventurous nature spurred him to explore, to learn, and to engage with the world around him fully. His handiness was legendary, there was no task too great or too small that Joey couldn't tackle. He was the go-to person when something needed fixing, and he did so with a smile, ensuring that everything worked just a little better after he had put his touch on it.

Joey's legacy is one of joy, resilience, and the power of family. His absence will be deeply felt by all who were fortunate enough to know him, but his spirit will continue to live on through the stories shared, the projects he completed, and the indelible mark he left on the hearts of his family and friends.

As we say goodbye to Joseph "Joey" Dunlap, we celebrate a life lived fully and with purpose. He was a beacon of light to his family, a steadfast friend, and a man who embraced life's adventures with open arms. Though we mourn his passing, we also take solace in the knowledge that his journey was rich, his relationships were deep, and his impact was profound.

Joey's life will be commemorated in a private service surrounded by his loved ones. His memory will be honored not through grand gestures, but in the quiet moments of reflection, the stories told between friends and the laughter of children — all of which were the essence of Joey's being.

Rest in peace, dear brother, uncle, colleague, and friend. Your story does not end here, for you live on in the love you shared and the lives you touched.

A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, January 29, 2024, from 5-7 pm at the home of Denise Dunlap.
