Joseph Morris Spratley, Jr. reunited with the love of his life, Catherine Mason, on the 3rd of July, 2022 in San Clemente, California at the age of 83. After meeting in 1966 in Richmond, Virginia, “Nana & Papa Joe” bravely made a life together built on true love, laughter, family and travel. May their love and sense of adventure carry them through the next place in peace, together. He expressed love and gratitude as he peacefully returned to her embrace, surrounded by his daughter, Shannon, son-in-law and dearest friend, Andrew and beloved grandson, Peter. “Sonny” is also survived by his loving sisters, Anne & Kathy, and many nieces and nephews that call him “Unk” in Virginia. He asked that services be held privately so that each family member and friend may remember him in their own way. His laugh and his charm are legendary. His love and legacy, eternal.
