Joseph Michael Biddle, 18, of Clinton, CT, passed away May 10, 2015. Joseph was born at Yale New Haven Hospital on January 22, 1997, with his twin sister, Talia, on his maternal grandmother’s birthday. From the beginning they knew Joseph was going to be an amazing person.
Survivors include his twin sister, Talia, of Clinton; his sister, Anabella Bryant, and stepbrother, Tre Bryant, of Waterford, CT; his grandparents, J. Michael and Bonnie Biddle of Clinton; and by his mother, Meredith, and stepfather, Tim Bryant, of Waterford. He also leaves behind his aunt and uncle, Blythe and David Cook of Deep River, CT; his cousins, Cassady, Zachary and Dylan Cook of Deep River; his great-uncles, Lester Burbrink and Bruce Biddle, and a great-aunt, Diana Biddle, and their families, all in Indiana; and his great-aunt, Myra McIntosh and family in Massachusetts.
Joseph was attending Morgan High School where he participated in the choral group, golf team and Anime Club. He was set to graduate in June.
He loved video games and being on the computer. Through his computer skills he managed to make friends all over the world. He loved the Renaissance period and frequently went to the Renaissance Fair with his best friend, Dan Ayotte. He was employed by Banana Republic as a cashier and loved being at the beach. He also loved surfing and skim boarding. He could often be seen riding his longboard around town. Most recently he and his friends were planning a trip to the Grand Canyon.
We believe his view of the Grand Canyon will be most beautiful from where he now rests.
