Joel Sawyer

December 6, 1962 — July 15, 2022

Joel C. Sawyer, age 59 of Syracuse, passed away quietly on July 15, 2022 at 1:33 a.m. He passed at home, surrounded by family.

Born in Des Moines, Iowa on December 06, 1962, Joel was the son of Billie Ray Sawyer  and Phyllis C. (Drew) Sawyer. He was a hard worker, spending much of his later career in RV production, most recently as a team leader at Keystone.

Joel loved his family and friends. He also loved being outdoors: riding his motorcycle, hunting, fishing and gardening. He had a tender side that only those who knew him got to see.

On June 25, 2016, Joel was married to Tresa Alexander. Tresa survives at home. Also surviving are daughter, Stephany Satoski; son, Andy Sawyer; father-in-law, Tommie Alexander; daughters-in-law: Shawn Vaughn, Loren Staten, Kailynn Elder and Elizabeth Graykowski and twenty-one grandchildren. He was preceded in passing by his parents and son, Joey Sawyer.

Owen Family Funeral Home of Syracuse is entrusted with Joel's care. The family is grieving privately with no public services planned.
