Joseph “Joey” May passed away on Thanksgiving Day with his older brother by his side. Joey was the beloved son of the late John L. May, Sr. and Dora (Malpino) May.
He leaves behind his brothers, John L. May, Jr. (Lois) and Kenneth, a sister, Barbara Ruggieri, many nieces and nephews, along with best friend, Linda Koenig.
Joey’s life was as colorful as his personality. After a 30-year exemplary career as a chef for a number of casinos in Las Vegas, he returned to Rhode Island to take care of his parents.
Besides tending to his gardens, and deep-sea fishing on Narragansett Bay, Joey spent time with family, friends, and neighbors, always enjoying sharing a story or serving wonderful gourmet meals. Buono Gusto !
A graveside service will be held at Quidnessett Memorial Cemetery, 6365 Post Rd, North Kingstown, on Tuesday December 7th at 11 am.
