Joseph (Joey) Thomas Biaso III, 28

WILMINGTON — Joseph Thomas Biaso ||| (Joey) found peace on October 25, 2021. A true “old soul,” Joey was born in a different generation than his heart beat in. Although he was a Beatles fan and a hippie at heart, Joey also lived in the future – in a place where people were all the same, no matter the color of their skin, the amount of money in their bank accounts, or the condition of their clothes… Joey saw people for the absolute best inside of them and touched everyone he met in a profound way. He worked with indigenous people to build housing in Nicaragua; he built computer infrastructure systems in Central America; he befriended monkeys in Costa Rica; and so much more. To say Joey traveled the world is an understatement. He wasn’t a tourist and never stepped foot on a resort. Joey hopped on a plane, immersed himself in the culture, befriended local people, donated his time, and changed the world just a little bit in: Greece, Peru, Panama, Italy, Costa Rica, India, Sri Lanka, Guatemala, and more. He did the same in the US from New York to California… and many places in between.

Testing out of high school math at just 8 years old, Joey found school and the 9-5 norm too simple for him. In his world, things were bigger than this. There was beauty in everyone and everything, no matter how much the world tried to show him differently. His heart was larger than most and his soul was as free as millions wished theirs could be.

He lived harder than most can dream of, loved deeper than many are capable of, and dreamed bigger than we could all aspire to.

Joey was a DevOps Engineer at Symbridge in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Joey is survived by his grandfather, Thomas Biaso, Sr.; his mother, Patti; his father Joseph; his sisters Michele and Jodi, and her husband Kirk; his nephew Zachary (whom he considered a brother); his nieces Amy, Sophia, Quinndellyn and Julia; and his nephew Maximillian.

Joey wrote about a dream community, where there is help for homeless and disabled people, where they could afford to live, get help, and thrive. Donations can be made in Joey’s name to the Eden Tiny Homes in Wilmington by placing his name in the comment box. The family hopes to name the garden after him. The family also asks everyone who loved Joey, or someone in his family, to do an act of kindness in his name.

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.”
