Joel Kaplan, born on October 17, 1963, to Abe and Vivian Kaplan, died on Saturday March 30, 2024. Joel was born in Atlanta and lived most of his life close to his childhood home on Beech Cliff Way. Joel attended Briarcliff High School from 1977 through 1982 and he remained close for many years with several of his high school friends. Joel often spoke of his fond memories of high school, and it was those memories that warranted him being so involved in helping plan many of the yearly allclass BHS reunions. It was only after his health began to decline that Joel stopped attending these events. Although Joel decided not to attend college, he was highly intelligent and became interested in computers almost in their infancy. Advanced beyond his years, Joel worked for several companies, including his own, in which he not only repaired computers but rebuilt them and ensured they were virus free. Joel is survived by his brother Mark, his aunt Shirley Minsk and several cousins. Joel will be remembered for his compassion, his loyalty to friends and for his strength in dealing with adversity and especially with his health issues. May his memory be a blessing!

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
