Joseph Hazen Giles passed away unexpectedly September 27, 2021. Joseph was born on January 3, 1993, in Ogden, Utah, a two pound premie. He was in the NICU for two months growing and getting stronger. He was diagnosed with Autism at age three and finally decided to talk when he was four years old.
He attended Ogden City Schools and met the love of his life Ashley Moon in high school. Joey completed high school and the Adult Transition Program. He loved ALMOST every minute of it. Joseph has a talent for art, drawing and especially miniature sculptures with amazing details. Sometimes he would let others see them, if you were lucky. He did them for his own enjoyment. He had an incredible imagination and it showed up in the stories he would write.
After finishing the Post High Program Joseph got a job and worked as a janitor for Weber School District. He enjoyed being independent by taking the bus to and from work. He took as much pride in his job as he did in creating his miniatures.
Joey was so excited to become an uncle. He loved playing games with Hazen and spending time with her. Joey loved being a bigger little brother to Trystine. He always wanted to make sure his Mom was okay.
Joseph had many struggles in his life and he worked hard and was strong throughout them. He never complained. He is an example of patience and caring. We have learned a lot from him and he will be missed.
Joseph was preceded in death by his grandpa, Gary P. Giles, his uncle, Bill Brown, his great-aunt Nerva (Bobbie) Naranjo, and his love Ashley Moon. He is survived by his Mother, Stephanie Giles, sister Trystine Jo Giles, niece Hazen Lucas, Father, Joseph Orosco (Sovereign), brother-Riley, sister-Tianna, Grandmothers Claris Giles and Elizabeth McBee. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins who love him.
A viewing will be from 10:00-10:45 am, Friday October 1, 2021, at Aaron’s Mortuary. Graveside services will be held afterwards at Evergreen Cemetery.
