Joseph was born Feb. 15, 1988 in Goshen, Ind., the son of Steven Ray Large and Dianna Lynn McDermitt.

Joe will be sorely missed by his family and friends. Joe’s tender heart was apparent in his love of animals and nature.

Joe’s life was too brief but will live on forever in the memories of his family and partner, “the love of his life,” Brittany Underhill.

Joe is survived by his father, Steven (Karen) Large of Middlebury, Ind.; mother, Dianna (Juan) Roman of Rochelle; three brothers, Seth (Rachelle) Large of Syracuse, Ind., Christopher (Brandi) Large of Houston, Texas, and Thaddeus (Destiny Stocklin) Large of Goshen, Ind.; three sisters, Alissa (Hector Ledezma) Large, Amy (Juan Ramirez) Large and Jessica (Jose) Cedeño all of Goshen, Ind.; grandparents, Hugh and Ann McDermitt of Rochelle, and Ray and Florence Large of Hillsboro, Ohio.

A funeral service will take place Saturday at 11 a.m. at Unger-Horner Funeral Home, Rochelle, with the Rev. James Tilley officiating.

Visitation will be Saturday from 9 to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
