The Joseph Middlemiss
Big Heart Foundation, Inc.

On September 23, 2013, six year-old Joseph Scott Middlemiss unexpectedly lost his life unexpectedly to cardiomyopathy (KAR-de-o-mi-OP-ah-thee), which is a disease of the heart muscle.

Music was a constant in Joey’s life. A gifted drummer, music soothed him, excited him, and allowed him to communicate in a way that words could not. Joey loved Star Wars, Spider Man, "his" IPad, Ninja Turtles, crab-fishing at Mem's cottage in Maine, riding his dune buggy, and, most of all, his family. Joey’s infectious laugh, and curly-lashed blue eyes were never happier than the day his baby brother was born. 


Joseph's spirit will live on forever in the hearts of all he touched. “This is the best day of my life,” words Joey added to his evening prayers. He demonstrated a passion for living each day to the fullest, exuberating joy that reached out and touched each of our hearts. Joseph's special, big heart held a wisdom and empathy far beyond his six years.
