Joseph H. Rawlins Sr., 72, of Bayville passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 surrounded by his family. Born in Jersey City, where he was known as “Giuseppe”, he moved to Brick at the age of 16. He also lived in Pt. Pleasant, Toms River and Ocean Gate before settling to Bayville many years ago. Joe was a Vietnam War Veteran serving in the US Army. After an honorable discharge, he joined his family trade as a lifetime baker, and was employed by many bakeries in Ocean County.

He met and fell in love with his wife Debbie, the love of his life. Joe was a great husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, son, and brother. He was quite a joker and always brought a laugh. Joe loved shooting pool, car races, playing cards and spending time with his loving family, friends, and his dog Sophie. Joe was one of a kind and will be loved and missed by all. He was predeceased by parents Lily and James and by his brothers Eddie, Jimmy and Charlie.

Joe is survived by his loving wife of 46 years Debbie; his children, Sharon, Joseph Jr., Lori, Jamie, Tracy; his grandchildren, Kayla, Laney, Kara, and his great grandson Kayden; his brother Billy and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

There’s not a day that goes by
That I don’t think of you
It’s me crying my eyes out everytime
Missing you
I love you so much
This is very hard for us
But you are at peace now
I love you daddy

There is not a day that goes by that my heart doesn't ache Daddy. I miss and love you more than any amount of words could describe. You're my hero, my angel, my everything. I'm so lost without you Dad. I miss your voice the most, and coming over everyday after work to see your gorgeous face. Nothing can ever fill this void. I lost one of the two most important people in my life, and the pain is excruciating. My dear angel, please know that I adore you and will always cherish all of our precious memories. I love you so so so much Daddy. Sleep in the sweetest peace my hero.

Grandpa, it’s been over a week since the day you gained your wings. I miss you deeply. I’m so glad you got to meet my son, your great grandchild, Kayden. Every time he seen you he always had a smile on his face. He recently learned to sit up on his own, can’t u believe it!? I know your watching over both him & I along with the rest of your grand children and children. Your in a happier place now. I messaged you on Facebook yesterday. I know you saw it & what it said. Until we meet again. When that day comes I’m going to give you a big hug. Xoxo Love, Kayla your first grand baby.
