Joseph Edward Maull Jr., often referred to as Juny, peacefully passed away Saturday, July 30, 2022.  He was born Nov. 27, 1946, to the late Joseph and Edith Maull of Lewes. He grew up in Lewes, and graduated in 1964 from William C. Jason High School in Georgetown. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He began his career as a cook at the Dover Air Force Base and worked there until his retirement in 2005. 

Joe fell in love and married Jacqueline Cirwithian. Following marriage, they began raising their children and instilling a strong sense of family values. As supportive parents, they traveled all over the United States to visit their children no matter the distance. 

Joe was always the life of a party. He enjoyed singing, dancing and an occasional drink. He loved watching westerns, and calling on family in the middle of the night. He was an avid New Orleans Saints fan and often could be found wearing his Saints jersey and many hats. Horse racing was his passion. He attended numerous Kentucky Derby races and was always excited for all legs of the Triple Crown.
