Canton — Treasured Forever
Joseph William Treadway, 16 , of Smokey Meadows Way, entered into the arms of the angels on his beloved birthday of July 4, 2013.
Joseph was born July 4, 1997 in Buncombe County and had resided in Haywood County all of his life. He was a rising junior at Pisgah High School and was a member of the Auto Mechanic Club. Joseph was always smiling and he possessed the natural gift of always making others feel better about themselves.
When we think of Joseph, we remember his big, beautiful, bright eyes and his unforgettable smile. Joseph deeply loved all of his family and his special love and care for his brother, Tyler was unending. He always called Tyler his “Best Buddy” and he had dedicated his life to helping Tyler get well. He loved to hunt and fish with his Dad and also enjoyed spending time with his younger cousin, Will Deweese. Joseph’s memory will always be in the hearts of those who loved and treasured him. He shall remain a part of us forever.
