Joey Trowbridge Car Accident, Joseph S. Trowbridge, age 28 and a resident of Kendallville, Indiana, passed suddenly on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident that occurred close to Albion, Indiana.
His parents, Steven and Pamela (Smith) Trowbridge, welcomed him into the world on July 15, 1994 in Kendallville. Joseph had attended East Noble High School and was currently working at T&R Landscaping, where he had been worked for a significant amount of time.
He held his status as a Tae Kwon Do Blackbelt of the Third Degree with a great deal of pride. He was an avid supporter of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the New England Patriots. Joseph’s favorite things to do included going fishing, watching NASCAR races with his family, playing video games, and cooking. He had a soft spot in his heart for animals, especially for his cat, Mittens. It was Christopher, his older brother, who introduced him to the music of the Grateful Dead.
People who knew Joseph will remember him as someone who was kind, generous, and grounded in reality. He is survived by his brother, Andrew Trowbridge, also of Kendallville, his parents, Steven and Pamela Trowbridge, both of Kendallville, and Sara Stanley, of Bloomington, who was reared with him as if she were a sister.
In addition, those who are still living include the following: aunts and uncles: Helen Gillespie of Garrett, Lois Fredrickson of Kendallville, Karen (Alan) Conrad of Elkhart, Janet (Lyle) Vian of Corunna, Laverna Reaves of Avon, Paula Smith of California, and Daniel (Dena) Trowbridge of Kendallville; in addition to numerous cousins and a large number of other members of the extended family.
His older brother Christopher Trowbridge passed away in 1997; his maternal grandparents, Harold and Iola Smith; his paternal grandparents, Jack and Thelma Trowbridge; and his aunts and uncles, David Smith, Keith Smith, Ron Reaves, Lawrence Trowbridge, Patricia Brumbaugh, Donna Conrad, and Judith Pretschold.
