29, lifelong resident of Manatee County, passed away unexpectedly on September 15, 2016. Joey was born in Bradenton, FL on June 4, 1987 to John and Gloria A. Craig Vitale. He grew up in a loving, supportive home and had a fairly typical childhood of a young Florida boy. Joey graduated from Bayshore High School in 2005 and then attended Manatee Technical College.
