Joseph Anthony Tringle, 43, passed away on November 4, 2022. He was born in Hampton, VA to Anthony Bruce Tringle and the late Mae Kalua Clifford. He is also predeceased by his nephews, Damian and Kadin Tringle. Joe lived his life loving God, family, friends, and those who also sought to overcome their burdens.  His spirit filled the room and hearts of all who love and know him.  It gave Joe joy to look beyond the trials in his personal journey to encourage others, without judgment and with the understanding of the heaviness of their burdens; always hoping to make a life-changing difference.

Joe’s love, laughter, and playful demeanor will always be remembered and his motto that “laughter is the best medicine” will live in the hearts of those he touched.  Joe walked through this world and our lives for a short time, a warrior in the battle he fought, knowing that he was loved and planting love, and now he is made new.

Joe is survived by his father; siblings, Patrick, Tammy, Larry, Elizabeth, Christina, and Ryan; nieces and nephew, Kadrea, Aubrie, and Michael; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and his special angel, Gail Hamilton.
