The Yardley native is being remembered for his tenacity and love of sports.

One of the most celebrated sports teams in Philadelphia will be celebrating the life of a Bucks County resident who once worked for them. Tom Moore wrote about the upcoming event for Philly Burbs.

The Philadelphia 76ers will honor Joey Monaghan, a 2017 Pennsbury graduate and Yardley resident who passed away on Sept. 22, 2022 at the age of 23, with “Joey Night” on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center.

He was an account executive with the team for a year following a stint as a sales associate for the New Jersey Devils of the NHL.

The pre-game event where Monaghan’s life and legacy will be celebrated will take place from 5:30 – 6:30 PM. Donations collected during the evening will be distributed to the Slay Sarcoma Research Initiative in Yardley.

Monaghan played basketball at Pennsbury, where he earned the team’s “3-D” Award – Desire, Drive, and Dedication – both as a  junior and senior. He served as Falcons’ team captain during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.

He also played basketball for Marywood University, where he appeared in 75 games while also earning academic honors in each of the four years he spent there.

In eighth grade, he was recognized with Pennwood Middle School’s Athlete of the Year award for excelling in football, basketball, and track.
