Joey was a proud first responder, starting at the age of 16, volunteering with the Ridge Volunteer Rescue Squad, Ridge Volunteer Fire department, Seat Pleasant Volunteer Fire Company, where he served as Chief, and Kentland Volunteer Fire Department. He worked in fire protection at the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant until the early nineties when he left to pursue a career in law enforcement. He began his career in Alexandria as a deputy sheriff, transferred to the Calvert County Sheriff’s Department and ended his career as a Sgt. With the Prince George’s County Police Department. He was very proud of his squad.
Joey loved to listen to music and would often travel around the DMV to hear local bands. He loved his dogs and hanging out at “the spot” with his brother Sam Tiru.
