Joseph Andrew York Jr. April 1, 1958- November 14, 2017

Joseph (Joe) Andrew York Jr. passed away unexpectedly on November 14, 2017.

Joe was born at Marin general hospital in San Rafael. He grew up in Novato and attended San Marin High School. Joe joined the United States Army and was very proud to have served our country. He returned home from the Army and eventually became employed by Goodman Building Supply where he went on to become a professional tile setter. Joe was a proud member of AA and unselfishly guided many in the AA community. Joe loved watching sports and always provided everyone with his knowledge of the teams that he loved, especially when it came to the San Francisco Giants. He also enjoyed fishing and found it a time for quiet meditation. Joe loved going on trips to Lake Tahoe with his loving life partner Eileen or as he called her his "Chula." He is survived by Eileen and her two children Paul and Eleni, his sister Annie York, nephews and nieces Eric, Blake, Sherry, Kristi and Janelle.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 pm, Sunday December 10th, at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building, 1351 Maple Ave, Santa Rosa, California.

Arrangements under the direction of Keaton's Redwood Chapel of Marin, Novato, CA.
