Joey is preceded in death by his father Billy Joe Gunn, cousins Larry Joe Gunn and Kenneth Gunn, paternal grandparents Velma and Smythe Gunn, and maternal grandparents Rueben and Ethel Colclasure.

His independence and strong will was unmatched, and his kids gratefully carry on his positive attributes.
