Joey Lex Tortice entered eternal rest on November 19, 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona. He was born to Lex Tortice Sr. and Rosita Tenijieth on January 3, 1984 in Show Low, Arizona. Most of us will remember him as a caring, funny, serious, knowledgeable and smart person. He was a good son, brother, nephew, grandson and a really good friend to many. His favorite hobbies were fixing electronics and making home-made videos. He really enjoyed everyone’s company and visits. He liked to talk about random things and knew a lot about science. He was a well-educated student. He was highly favored by many teachers throughout his school years. My brother, Joey, will be dearly missed by many families and friends for he was a humble and strong person. Forever in our hearts. We will always love you, Joey.
