Joey was born on January 16, 1953, son of Carol Joseph “Joe” Cronkleton and Mary Louise (Ream) Cronkleton.  He married the love of his life, Pam Oliver on May 14, 1976, and together they had two children. 

 

Joe was a 47 year member of the Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 387 and was initiated in May of 1975.  Before Local 387 merged with Local 25 in 1998 Joe served in many different capacities; such as member of the E-board and the Negotiations committee.  He retired with 35 years in the trade on April 1, 2009.  He enjoyed spending time at the family garage, H&J.  He was often mistaken as Santa Clause and played the part magnificently.  Above all he loved spending time with family and friends, especially his grandchildren.  He loved to watch them have fun with the many 'toys' he had for them. He will be deeply missed. 

 

He is survived by his wife, Pam; daughter Nicole (Hashim) Bilal; son Chad (Trista) Cronkleton; grandchildren Chase, Iris, and Izaiah Bilal and Corbin Cronkleton; siblings Jeff (Kelly) Cronkleton, Jon (Sally) Cronkleton and Cindy (Bob) Johnson; Aunt Jane Cronkleton and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents.
