Joseph "Joey" Yoroshko IV, age 28, of Mullica Hill, a graduate of Kingsway HS

p>Joseph “Joey” Yoroshko IV, 28 years of Mullica Hill, N.J., died suddenly on February 16, 2008.

Joey was a fun-loving, spontaneous guy who was full of smiles and laughter. He was a wheeler and dealer and was known for his bartering ways. Joey had a way of telling stories that made people listen to him; the more he told them, the bigger and better the stories got. Joey loved outdoor activities; from boating and racing in the spring and summer to hunting and snowmobiling in the winter in upstate New York, he enjoyed it all; “Hoods Up.” Joey will be remembered for the way his smile lit up a room and will be sadly missed by his loving family and dear friends.

Born in Leavenworth, KS, Joey was a resident of Mullica Hill for 21 years. A 1998 graduate of Kingsway High School, Joey was quite the entrepreneur. He has been driving a truck since he was 18 and owned Yoroshko Trucking in Pennsville, N.J. for five years.
