It is with great sadness that the family of Joseph "Joey" Bryan Medrano, announces his sudden passing on June 24, 2013. Joey was born on August 11, 1991, in Soesterberg, Holland to parents, Joseph and Ursula Medrano. Joey's mother always referred to him as her "fragile little boy," as he was soft spoken and suffered from Epilepsy. Joey loved to skateboard and had a passion for music.

He will be remembered by his very special friend and soul mate, Halie Claycomb, along with numerous other friends.
Joey is survived by his parents, Joseph and Ursula Medrano; sisters, Christy Medrano and Julie (Felix) Thibodeaux; aunts and uncles, Loretta and Bobby Walters, Patti and Terry Hempen, Michael and Michelle Medrano, Deirdre and Drew Miller, Gordon Patterson and fiancé Cindy, Stephen Patterson, and Emily Maris; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
