Joseph Michael Pedrotti
May 10, 1999 - April 2, 2021
Fairway, Kansas - Joseph Michael Pedrotti, 21, of Fairway, KS passed away unexpectedly from a tragic accident on Good Friday, April 2, 2021. He is the loving son of Marc and Angie Pedrotti. He was born in Kansas City, MO on May 10, 1999. Joe attended St. Agnes Grade School, graduated from Bishop Miege High School in 2017 and was a senior at the University of Missouri studying Mechanical Engineering.
At Bishop Miege, Joe was a 5-time state champion student-athlete (3 – Football, 2 – Basketball). At Mizzou, Joe was a Dean's High Honor roll student and a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity where he represented his chapter at the Horizons Leadership Summit. Joe was awarded many scholarships at MU for his leadership and academic excellence including the Josh Seidel Scholarship, 2020 Builder's Association Scholarship, Engineers Club of Kansas City, and Dave Wollersheim Scholarship. During his college summers, Joe interned at WaterOne and Black & Veatch in the Water Division.
No one is perfect, but Joe was about as close to perfect a person can be. Joe was always loving, kind, humble, patient, self-assured, funny and hardworking. Many of us find it easy to do the right thing when others are watching; however, Joe was the person who did the right thing when no one was watching. He loved his friends and cherished all the time he spent with them.
Joe had a tremendous sense of adventure and was game for anything. He loved to travel especially on vacations to Isle of Palms, SC, skiing in Colorado, time at the Lake of the Ozarks, and Lake Viking. He treasured football road trips, MU football and basketball games, the Chiefs and Royals.
Joe was the biggest fan of his younger siblings, always following them and extremely proud of their accomplishments. Joe touched many lives in his short time on this Earth. Even in death, Joe continues to give through his unselfish decision to be an organ donor. We continue to pray for the health of the four individuals who received his organs.
Joe is preceded in death by his grandfather, Raymond Moritz and uncle, Michael Pedrotti. Joe is survived by his parents, Marc and Angie Pedrotti, his siblings Sam, Jon and Kate, his grandparents Dick and Maureen Pedrotti and Suzanne Moritz. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Services will be as follows: Visitation 5:30 – 7:30pm April 8 at Bishop Miege High School.
