Joseph Matthew LaMas, 38, of Hawley passed away in the presence of his family at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital on Sunday, June 28, 2020.

Born March 21, 1982 in Kingston he was the son of Michele LaMas and Matthew Paul Frushon, and the grandson of the late Joseph and Shirley LaMas, and the late Raymond and Lucille Frushon.

As a boy he loved playing football and baseball, and whenever time permitted, he would be found fishing at local streams and lakes.

Joey attended schools in Hanover and Wilkes-Barre and continued his education studying culinary arts, becoming an accomplished chef.

Joey worked at multiple venues across Pennsylvania through the years. When he wasn't creating a delicious meal, he wrote beautiful poetry and lyrics or visited his many friends and family.

His parents; children, Avagail Thompson, Maddox, Alex, Leland and Evan LaMas; siblings, Angela, Michael, Thomas and Daniel; step-siblings; aunts, uncles, loving cousins, and friends will much miss him.

Joey's family celebrated his life privately. Father Jack Lambert celebrated a Funeral Mass in the Church of Saints Peter and Paul. Burial was in Saint Mary's Cemetery.
