November 29, 1935 – September 6, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Joe has gone to be with the Lord and savior and his loving wife Jean.
Joe was born near Blaine Lake Saskatchewan and moved to Midway, B.C. as a young lad. He married his high school sweetheart Jean in 1956 and they raised their 3 daughters in Golden BC.
Joe was a quiet hardworking soul with love for his family and the Lord.
Joe and Jean retired to Kelowna in 2003. Even though Joe lost his ability to speak from a stroke in 2008, he spoke volumes to his family and staff who cared for him.
He is survived by his 3 daughters Carolyn, Sandra, Janet (Roger), 5 grandchildren, Justus (Lindsay), Bradley (Sasha), Stephanie (Rick), Katelyn (Ali), Hilary (Donovan) and his 4 great-grandchildren Jaylen, Kason, Layan, and Florence. “Papa Joe” loved his visits with them all.
Joe was predeceased by his father in 1975, mother in 2006, brother’s Olesko 2007, Wes 2009 and his loving wife Jean in 2011.
We will miss him and are thankful that he loved the Lord. In respect for his wishes there will be no service. Joe and Jean will be laid to rest in Midway, B.C. in the fall.
