Joseph David Babcock, age 31, of St. Anthony and New Brighton was welcomed home by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 31, 2018. He is survived by his loving family, friends, and those who knew him.
Joseph attended Totino-Grace High School and was a senior at Bethel University when he was diagnosed with brain cancer and had emergency surgery to save his life. Over the next ten years, he put up a more than courageous fight. What did not slow was his love for Jesus, life, family, writing, painting, and nature. Joe was a beloved son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend who will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held at GracePoint Church, 2351 Rice Creek Rd, New Brighton; on Friday, August 10, at 11:00am with a visitation one hour prior.
In lieu of flowers memorials preferred.
