Joseph Anthony Kedroski

Joseph Anthony Kedroski, a cherished individual known for his gentle and humble nature, passed away on January 30, 2024. Born on November 13, 1969, in Dallas, Texas, he was beloved by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Joseph was a pillar of strength, immersing himself in responsibilities while maintaining a remarkably good spirit throughout his life. His honest and loyal character endeared him to friends and family alike, and he exemplified a natural instinct to protect those he loved.

Joseph had an unwavering spiritual presence that touched the lives of many. In every conversation he had, he would kindly bid farewell with the words, "Have a Blessed Day." This simple gesture captured the compassion and thoughtfulness that defined his personality. A passionate lover of food, Joseph savored in the joy that different culinary experiences brought him. Joseph grew an appreciation for good food. He took great pleasure in sampling various cheeseburgers specifically and never hesitated to give an honest critique. After every good meal, he would always exclaim with satisfaction, "That was delicious!"  He also found great pleasure in playing dominoes with friends and listening to all kinds of music brought him joy. His sociable nature meant that he enjoyed interacting with everyone around him and making new connections. Joseph held a deep-rooted interest in the local Greenville High School Lions football team. He cherished attending their games and cheering them on alongside fellow supporters. The energy and camaraderie he experienced while watching the Lions play brought him immense joy. He was also a dedicated fan of the Dallas Cowboys football team and took pleasure in watching classic western shows, Perry Mason mysteries, comedy sitcoms, and wrestling SmackDown. However, Joseph's legacy extends far beyond his love for food and football. He dedicated countless hours as a proud volunteer at The Coffee House, a prominent social organization at Lakes Regional. Joseph took pride in his responsibilities at The Coffee House and always strived to make a positive impact on everyone who walked through its doors.

Joseph's passing leaves a void in the hearts of many who knew and loved him dearly. He is preceded in death by his parents John Henry Kedroski and Dolores Lee Kedroski, as well as nephews Anthony Glenn Horton and Mikey Lorenz, along with great-nephew Preston Haley. Joseph leaves behind surviving family members who will forever cherish their memories together. He is survived by his sister Paula Cowart, brother John Kedroski, sister Jacquelyn Lorenz, sister Vickie Friske; nieces and nephews: Jennifer Kedroski Armstrong, Laci Lorenz Wheeler, David Lorenz, Amy Stubbe, Sara Hernandez, Christina Cowart, James Cowart, Tiffany Vu, Courtney Kedroski Pitaro, and Cody Kedroski. He is also survived by great-nieces and nephews: Anthony Lorenz, Anthony Hernandez, Kameron Session, Nathan Irvin, Cole Stubbe, Kennedy Session, Jessica Cowart, Breanna Cowart, Madison Haley, Alison Haley, Sadi Smith, Elaina Caulk, Arya Harris, and Naomi Vu. Joseph will be deeply missed by his extended family and many dear friends whose lives he touched.

A graveside service to honor Joseph's memory will be held on February 5th. The service will take place at Highland Memorial Gardens in Terrell, TX. The location of the cemetery is 17945 TX-34, Terrell, TX 75161. The service will commence at 11:00 AM and conclude at 12:00 PM.

Joseph's legacy of kindness and compassion will continue to inspire all those who were fortunate enough to know him. In celebrating his life and remembering cherished memories shared with him over the years, we can find solace in the knowledge that his spirit lives on in our hearts. May Joseph Anthony Kedroski rest in eternal peace.

I added it like so to a Facebook post but would like to add. To his obituary.
