It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph, Joey, Joe Yule, age 61. He was born on January 2, 1961 and died on October 13, 2022. He was a bright spark in this world and will be deeply missed.
Joe grew up in Colorado and always had a passion for the outdoors; skiing, hiking, fishing even working at Winter Park and Monarch ski areas. Joe moved to California in the mid-eighties where he found his true home. His life there was filled with genuine friendships, mega cycling, amazing graphic design, chocolate Labradors, major injuries, and miraculous recoveries. He was happiest living by the ocean, telling stories that tried to capture the way that cycling and the truly important things in life intersect.
Joe left behind his best friend/dog Zane, an army of friends in the South Bay, his mother Bobbe Yule, brother Scott Yule (Karen McDonough), sister Donna Boyle (John Boyle), and nieces Kelsie Boyle (Judd Dew) and Sydney Galligan (Kyle Galligan). He was a devoted son, brother, friend, and proud uncle.
A private family service will be held in Colorado in the spring.
