We are so saddened by your loss. Joe was a very special man who lit up the room with his infectious smile and joyful nature. Our heartfelt condolences to Lou, Pat, Dan and the whole Crupi family. Susan and John Jenah
Susan and John,
Your generosity, love and support was and is immeasurable. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Vi ringraziamo da vero cuore.
I never met him. But from all the comments from the family he was Mr Hollywood. May his soul be in heavon and watching over the family
Thank you for those kind words. I wish you had met him…he certainly would’ve left an imprint.
My deepest condolences to the family , joe was an amazing gentleman, who always smiled and laughed.
His spirit for life was infectious, and he was a proud father and husband, even though I never met the family he always spoke with such pride when discussing family …I will miss him as I’m sure will the world. Will miss our cigar moments 🙏
This brought me to tears. He spoke about you all the time and cherished his time with you, I’m sure. Please keep his legacy alive…have a cigar in his honour once this pandemic is over. Hearing those words about how he spoke about us put a smile on my face and a tear in my eyes. Thank you for sharing those thoughts. Take care.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to all of You. His cheerfulness will always be remembered.
Bruno and Cathy, thank you for your kind word about Joe. He will truly be missed. Take care.
Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing on of Joe, better known to his Waxer boys as Pino. Joe coached our son, Jesse’s team when he was 10 years old. They may not have won a lot of games, but Jesse remembers it as being one of his most fun years in minor hockey because Pino had a lot of fun with the boys- he was more than a coach- he was their friend, their mentor, their guide and always had a joke and a smile for the boys. To Joe, hockey was there to teach the boys how to cope as a competitive player first, then learn some hockey as you went along. The bottom line was to have fun. RIP, Pino. Your memory will live with us forever
Deepest Condolences to you and your family during this very difficult time. There are so many people that still don’t believe that Covid-19 is real, it’s unfortunate that your family had to be a testament to how real it is. I don’t know him or your family, but I read his story,and I feel your pain.
Hearing from a complete stranger and receiving condolences, truly touched our hearts. Yes, it’s unfortunate that a lot of people are not aware of how serious this virus can be. It has taken the life of my beloved husband, and father to my children. Please stay safe, and thank you for your kindness.
Theresa and John,
I wanted to thank you for your kind words and sharing those memories of Pino. His love for hockey and those years of coaching went beyond words. I really think those were some of the best years of his life. We have made some long lasting friendships and acquaintances during those years and for that I’m thankful.
Hope you and the family are all keeping safe and my best to all.
My sincere condolences to Patricia and the entire Crupi and Maggiori families. Both families have gained a special guardian angel. I remember Joe from our high school days. He always had a very infectious smile. May Joe rest in Eternal Peace and watch over his family.
Frank and Columba,
Thank you for your kind thoughts. Joe will be missed greatly by both our families for many years to come. He has left an indelible mark in the time he had on this earth. Stay safe.
As a next door neighbor of Joe’s father at 3077 Weston Rd, I wish to express my sincere condolences to the extended, entire Crupi Family, in particular to his father, my dear neighbor “Toni”.
I share with you all the pain and offer my prayer that your faith may give you strength in this time of deep sorrow!
“May the good earth be soft under him when he rests upon it….
And may it rest easy over him when he lay under it in deep sleep…. May it rest so lightly over him that his soul may escape quickly to rise up and up and away to travel along the trails of the universe until it reaches the eternal light………..and touch the face of God!”
I want to thank you for your deep-felt condolences. Although I have never had the pleasure of meeting you, my father-in-law Toni has spoken highly of you and we are all so grateful that he has such a wonderful and caring neighbor.
God Bless you, and please stay safe.
Our deepest condolences to all the family, heaven gained a beautiful angel.
Connie, Nelson, I can and Valentina Lobello-Afonso

I had the pleasure of meeting you on one of Joe’s many visits to the store. One thing I will always remember is when he would come home with a bag from Harry Rosen, so excited about his new purchase. He always respected your opinion when it came to fashion!

To Lu and the family, we are deeply saddened by your loss. I knew Joe through his involvement in Markham Minor Hockey when we coached together and through men’s pickup hockey usually playing against each other. Joe was an excellent coach who always had a huge bright smile and a special talent of getting along with the kids. You could tell they loved to play for him through the way they interacted with him both on the ice and on the bench. You became Joe’s friend the moment you met him. Graham & Marion Martin
