April 11, 1931 – November 3, 2015

Dad, our Papa Joe, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at the age of 84. Joe was predeceased by his wife Marilyn (Lynn) in May 2008 and his brother Eddie on October 18, 2015. Remembered with love by his 6 children: Kim (Skye), Michelle (Robert), Ava, Patti (Doug), Jeff (Shelley) and Margie (Dwight); 11 grandchildren: Sarah, Andra, Cameron (Astrid), Melissa (Josh), Kyle, Brittany, Alicia, Perry, Joel, Hayden and Lewis; 4 great-grandchildren: Tobin, Aiden, Jasper and Shelby; many relatives and long-time friends.

Dad came to Sooke with his young bride Lynn in 1954 and lived for almost 40 years on Otter Point Road. Mom was the fun and noise – the energy, and Dad was the quiet substance – strong and steady. Together they provided a loving, welcoming home for their children, many friends and extended family. A memorial service celebrating a life well lived and a man well-loved will be held at the Sooke Royal Canadian Legion, 6726 Eustace Road at 1pm on

Saturday, November 14, 2015.
