Joseph Lewis Titus, son of Debra L. Matthews and Mark S. Morrison, left this life November 11, 2010. Born September 29, 1979 in Baltimore, Maryland, he became a young man that touched many lives and was loved by those who knew him. Afflicted with the genetic disease Hunter Syndrome, he never let it get in his way. Joe pursued the higher road, achieving the Boy Scouts Eagle level and Arrow of Light. He worked from the time he was 16, and, after completing High School with honors, put himself through college to finally earn his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a focus on Management. As a teenager, Joe aspired to work for the Disney Corporation and interned a semester at Disney World. This inspired him, and he eventually worked at the Disney Store, Disney World, and Disneyland in his short time on earth (and took cruises on the Disney Cruise Line). I am sure Joe is talking with Walt right now. Many know Joe from his years working at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium and the Zoo Society. Joe now leaves an empty desk after four years with Harborstone Credit Union, Tacoma Central Avenue branch. Arrangements: 253-232-3810 or email email@example.com. .
