May the friends and family of Mr. Lupus find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

To the Lupus Family It is always so sad when our dear loved ones are no longer with us. We must remember that our Heavenly Father asks us to lean on him for comfort and strength that only He can provide at Isaiah 41:10, 13 he says "Do not be afraid, I will help you". Then he guarantees it by promising to resurrect our love to life at John 5:28,29. May you find peace and comfort from God's Holy Word

Malaney and McCandless, , Pa

Mark, Amber, and Ashly, I wish so much there were words that could help ease the grief you are experiencing at this time. There isn’t, but I continue to pray for God’s provision in your life. Just let me say what a blessing it was for me to have the honor of coaching Joey for 6 years. He was a special baseball player, but even more, he was a special kid, and young man, and I have always cherished the memories of my time with him during these years, and will never forget his special smile. There was only one Joey Lupus. What I remember most is watching how much he loved his family. His mother, Kathy, sister Ashley, and you, Mark, were what was most important to him, and it was a joy to watch him express this. While it was a blessing in so many ways to coach Joey the baseball player, I have been so much more blessed through the life of Joey the person, and I thank God for this, and thank you for raising such a fine young man.

Jeff Hart, Savannah, Ga

Condolences to the family. We had the privilege watching Joey grow into the vibrant soul that he was. So full of life, laughter, and love and he shared that with all around him. There will be a time and place we all meet again and what a day that will be. May God comfort you with love and peace.

Joseph "Joey" Lupus, 25, passed away on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

The Savannah native had a love for baseball that was evident to all that knew him. He graduated from Calvary Day School in 2011 where he played baseball for the Cavaliers along with the Savannah Heat and Savannah Catz baseball teams. While earning his B.S. in Criminal Justice from Armstrong State University, Joey was a member of the Armstrong Pirates baseball team. Joey joined the Savannah Metropolitan Police Department in 2015 where he was recently assigned to the Southside Precinct Crime Suppression Unit.

Joey was preceded in death by his mother, Kathleen Ann Lupus.

Surviving are his wife, Taylor Russell Lupus; his father and stepmother, Mark and Amber Lupus; his sister and brother-in-law, Ashley and Brynn Fitzpatrick; two nephews, Andrew and Hunter Fitzpatrick; his stepsister, Paige Healy; his stepbrother, Joshua Healy; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, baseball brothers, and brothers and sisters in blue.

The family will receive friends 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 25, 2018 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. May 26, 2018 at Calvary Baptist Temple with Reverend Derward Poole officiating.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Cory Joseph Wilson Memorial, Inc., 2822 US Highway 80 West,  Savannah, GA 31408.

Honorary pallbearers will be his baseball brothers from Calvary Cavaliers, Armstrong Pirates, Savannah Catz, and Savannah Heat baseball teams.
