Joseph "Jo Jo" Edward William Light

September 20, 1989 ~ October 1, 2017 (age 28)


   On the morning of Sunday, October 1st, 2017,  Joseph Edward William Light of Canton passed away unexpectedly.  He was 28 years of age.  Born September 20th, 1989 in Sebring, Florida, he was the son of Joseph W. and Stacy (Morse) Light.   Known to his friends as Jo Jo, he was no stranger to hard work, and had been employed at various farms in the Canton area.  Soft spoken and with a cheerful smile, Jo Jo made friends easily and was always there to lend a hand to those in need.  He believed in the power of prayer and enjoyed worshiping at churches in the Canton area.  So important was this to him that he always made sure his son attended as well.

   Joseph is survived by his son, Kayden Light of Canton, stepfather Marty Marbaker of Milan, sisters Joanna (&James) Gasparro of Canton and Stephanie (& Steve) Reynolds of Rhode Island and nieces and nephews ; Jaylynn Gasparro, Julietta Gasparro, Hailey Reynolds, Chasidy Reynolds, Ella Reynolds, Max Reynolds, Christopher Harding and Aubree Harding. He was preceded in death by his mother, Stacy Marbaker.

In keeping with the family’s wishes, there will be no public service.   (
