Joseph R. Babnik 1990-2020

WARREN — With our hearts filled with sadness, our precious Joseph R. “Joe” Babnik, 29, was lifted from this world to be eternally with the Lord on Friday, Sept. 18, 2020.

Beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend to many, Joe’s smile, laughter and ability to warm the hearts of all those he touched will be sadly and greatly missed. Honorable, kind and so full of life and love for his family, Joe was a precious and beautiful soul whose laughter and happiness were contagious.

Joe was born Oct. 13, 1990, in Warren, the son of Richard T. and Mary Jane (Hines) Babnik.

Joe enjoyed music, poetry, working outdoors and fishing with his father. He also loved watching Cleveland Browns football games with his family. He shared a unique, loving bond with all those close to him. He dreamt of one day having a family of his own to love and cherish.

Besides his parents, Joe is survived by his grandmother, Ann Sprague of North Bloomfield; two sisters, Cassie (Adam) Johnson of Austintown and Jillian Paige Babnik of Jacksonville, Fla.; a brother, Matthew Reeve; nephews, Xander Miles and Leo Johnson; and countless uncles, aunts and cousins.

A Mass in Joe’s memory will be 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 25, 2020, at St. William Catholic Church, 5431 Mahoning Ave., Warren, OH 44483, with the Rev. Michael D. Balash, as celebrant.

Friends may call 9:30 to 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 25, 2020, at St. William Church.

He will be laid to rest in Brownwood Cemetery, North Bloomfield.

Arrangements for Mr. Babnik are being provided by the Carl W. Hall Funeral Home, 533 N. Park Ave., Warren.
