June 25, 1985 - June 24, 2020
Joseph "Joey" "Joe Bird" "Babe" Steven Evans Reichardt went to be with Jesus on June 24, 2020-the day before his 35th birthday-after a most courageous and faith-filled battle with cancer. Joey was a Gainesville native and University of Florida graduate who married his college sweetheart, Mary, and together they have three beautiful children; Jack (12), Charlotte (9) and Samuel (6). Mary and Joey spent 16 beautiful years together traveling, working and adventuring. Joey enjoyed paintball events with friends, exploring new cities around the world like NYC, Madison, Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris, and playing "blob monster" with his kids every single weekend. He was an incredible athlete, and made the best french toast ever. He never met a stranger, or anyone he didn't offer to help in some way. He was often discovered sneaking off to shop for "steals" at Lowes, Goodwill and T.J. Maxx--almost always for gifts for others, and was somehow able to stay gorgeous on a diet of Culver's butter burgers, ice cream, pickles and Rips. He enjoyed working hard every day, and was an unstoppable force of faith, joy and strength. In addition to his wife and children, Joey is survived by his parents, Jack and Carrie Reichardt, and his siblings John (Abby), Jane (Adam), Jay (Kaitlyn) and Carrieanne, along with many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. An active member of Greenhouse Church, the family will receive guests via invitation on Friday, July 3 at 11:00 am. Due to COVID restrictions a limited number of attendees will be able to be physically present, but the service will be Live Streamed via Greenhouse Church website, and details will be shared there. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to local Gainesville Haven E.T. York Hospice Care Center located at 4200 NW 90th Blvd. Gainesville, FL.
