Joseph "Joey" Glen Whitley of Crofton, MD passed away peacefully on January 27, 2018 at his home.

Joey was born on February 28, 1967 in Alexandria, VA. He was the oldest son of Reese Jackson and Bonnie Day Whitley.

Joey served in the U.S. Army's Light Infantry. After an honorable discharge from the Army, Joey worked as an apprentice electrician while attending school in the evening until he earned his Electrician's License. He followed this by returning to school for two years to study robotics and electronics. He finished first in his class.

After school, Joey went to work for Verizon as a Central Office Technician in their Landline Power division. He had worked for Verizon for 19 years at the time of his passing.

Joey is survived by his parents, his brother, Jay Whitley (Patricia), his sister, Jennifer Whitley McCarthy (Robert) and his two nephews, Robert Reese and Jackson Day McCarthy.

Joey left a legacy and wonderful memories as a loving, lovable, friend and person. His smiling countenance was never turned away from his family, his friends, someone in need and even stray cats without a home. He will be missed beyond measure.

No one loved animals more than Joey. Should friends desire, contributions may be made in his honor to the City Dog Rescue and City Kitties D.C.
