Salvador Joseph "Joey" Dalleo Jr., of Robert, Louisiana and formerly of Saint Rose, passed away in an automobile accident in Robert on the evening of Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at the age of 31. He was born on October 1, 1988, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Joey grew up in Saint Rose, raised with his cousins, Kasandra, Naomi and Seliena, and graduated from Destrehan High School. He worked for H&E Equipment Services in Kenner and New Orleans since 2009, and made many friendships there. Joey had a genuine love and respect for animals and nature, and was a true example of an outdoorsman. He loved playing in the swamp and the water, catching huge fish of every variety, saving animals that had strayed from their habitats, and keeping odd pets like a tiny crawfish. All of these things earned him his nickname "Swamp Boy." Joey will always be remember for his kind heart, his ability to make a friend with ease; and his love of nature.
Joey is dearly loved by his mother, Monique Michelle "Nikki" Whittaker; Grandpa and Mema, Bob and Lu Rounds; sister, Penelope "Penny" Whittaker; niece, Elizabeth Josephine Chiasson; aunt, Jennifer Nunez; as well as numerous other family members.
He was preceded in death by his father, Salvadore Joseph "Sal" Dalleo Sr.; Monique's fiancé, Butch Naquin; and aunt, Talitha Rounds.
