Joseph Ryan "Joey" Doolittle, 9, Newnan, died July 4, 2008. He had a long and heroic battle with cancer from the age of 3 months. He was an inspiration to many and even though the cancer spread throughout his body, he was thinking of other sick children. He founded a charitable organization call "Joey's Toy Box" in order to provide toys to other children who battle cancer. His legacy will live on through his good works.

Services were at the Cornerstone United Methodist Church with interment at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Newnan. Survivors include his parents, Tom and Kim Doolittle; brothers, Tommy Doolittle, and Robby Doolittle; and grandparents, John and Christine Doolittle, and Deane and Ginger Taylor. Memorial donations may be made to Joey's Toy Box Foundation, 90F Glenda Trace, Ste. 429, Newnan, GA 30265.

McKoon Funeral Home, Newnan, was in charge.
