Joey Ray Gunnoe passed away at his home in Naoma WV. March 26,2021 after a long fight with his demons from addiction. Born January 21,1985 he was a graduate from Marsh Fork High School he enjoyed working at saw mills and in Timber. From the minute Joey was born he brought a joy to my life but not only mine he made such an impact on everyone that ever got a chance to meet him. You never seen him without a smile on always knowing what to say always making you laugh. Joey was so creative and could play basically any instrument put in front of him. Joey loved spending time with his family and spending as much time as possible with his son Kaden. He enjoyed being outdoors and hanging out with his friends. He had so much potential that got stolen from the heroine even his life. Joey was proceeded in death by his grandfather Joe Bailey and an uncle, Leslie Bailey (Bub).
