Joseph (Joey) James


Year of Birth: 1974
Passed Away: March 5th, 2022

March 5, 2022, Joey D’Alfonso of Richmond and Osoyoos, B.C., passed away unexpectedly in Thailand at the age of 47. He was gentle, kind, outgoing, fun loving, and loyal. His decades long friendships speak for themselves. Joey enjoyed travelling that included Thailand, Europe, Mexico, and Brazil. However, he would have given up any trip to stay home and see the Canucks win the Cup. Fishing, golfing, skiing, camping, and the finer things in life with all his friends and family brought him great joy. Joey worked for B.C. Ferries for sixteen years as a deckhand and was a proud member of the B.C. Ferries Mustang Club. Predeceased by grandfathers, Duncan Stirling and Leonardo D’Alfonso; grandmother, Maria D’Alfonso; uncles, John D’Alfonso, James Roderick (Rod) Stirling, and Tony D’Alfonso and godfather, Bob Wasko.

Joey will be fondly remembered by his loving family including his mother, Jerralynn;

father Joe (Jorie); sister, Jennifer (David) Boyes; nieces, Claire and Emma

Boyes; grandmother and grandfather, Betty and Hans Baier as well as extended family and many friends. There will be two Events to honour Joey. April 8, 2022, at 2:00 pm at Richmond Country Club, 9100 Steveston Hwy, Richmond, B.C. April 24 at 2:00 pm at Spirit Ridge Conference Centre, Rancher Creek Rd, Osoyoos, B.C. Donations are gratefully accepted in Joey’s memory to the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation.
