Joseph Anthony Chase

August 12, 1981 — June 18, 2022


Joseph Anthony Chase Sr. (known as Joey) passed away in his home at the age of 40 on June 18, 2022.

Joey was born August 12, 1981 in Newnan Ga, but resided in South Carolina most of his life. Joey grew up in Elloree, SC where he was cheerful and athletic. He excelled in football and baseball from the age of 6 or 7 through his high school years. His Coach once said “he may be the smallest kid on the field, but he has the biggest heart in the game!” Joey was the comedian of the family and could make anyone laugh. He spent his adult life in Charleston working in construction, specializing in drywall. He was known by many, but to his family he was known as a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a grandson, and a friend. He had his struggles, as many do, but he was a Christian at heart and will be missed dearly.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Carmen and Russell Drennan, Larry Hesterlee, Desma Elois Winkles, Lucius W. Chase, uncle Roger Stone and niece Shelly Lilliana Gomez.

Survivors include 2 sons Joseph Anthony Chase Jr. and David Elijah Chase, and one daughter Halie Savanna Chase all of Charleston, SC  and his grandson Jackson Biehl of Charleston, SC.
