Obituary

Joseph Lee Tarleton, Jr. made his journey to heaven on September 26, 2020 at the age of 53.  Beloved son of Florence S. Tarleton of Easton, Maryland and Joseph Lee Tarleton, Sr. (deceased), brother to Robin DiDomenico and her husband Michael DiDomenico, uncle to Amanda Keffer and her husband Zach Keffer, great uncle to Savannah Keffer.
There are dozens of words you could use to describe Lee as an ordinary person.  You could call him a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin or a friend.  Some would describe an amazing baseball player and some would remember a huge Ravens fan.  You might recall him being the life of the party.  However, if you knew him well, you knew he was far from ordinary.  He had a wild side, but he had an amazing grace to him.  His heart was wide open and he wore it on his sleeve.  He had a boisterous laugh, warm eyes and a contagious smile.  He lived everyday like it was his last and never stopped remembering how to have fun.  Even on his worst day he would do anything to make someone else laugh or smile.
They say the true secret to having it all is knowing you already do.  It seems he knew this and it is truly how he lived his life.  He didn't worry about having a lot of material things or a lot of money.  His most prized possessions were his friends, his family and the memories he made with them.  This is what made him the extraordinary man he was.
