I am deeply saddened by your passing, but I am grateful for having an amazing uncle in my life. You will always be remembered and will always be in my thoughts. Elaine, Jennifer, and Joey, my deepest condolences and love in this tough time, I know he is watching over you.
Elaine, I am so, so very sorry on the tremendous loss of Joe.
He was such a nice and kind person. He was always smiling and laughing.
I had the privilege of knowing him my whole life because of my uncle Fred. My grandparents and parents loved him.
I hope that you and your children find comfort knowing he truly is at peace and free of pain. I’m so saddened by this. He was too young.
I’m praying for you, your kids, and for Joe.
May he rest in eternal peace with our Lord and with those who are now reunited with him. My deepest condolences.
I had the great pleasure of meeting Joe in 1981 when I transferred from Vancouver to Toronto with CP Rail. Joe was a very decent, humble and caring man. He treated everyone with respect, and he was a true gentleman. Joe had an impact on my life, and his passing is a loss to everyone who knew him.
Elaine, words fail to express my deep sorrow for your loss. Joe was my Uncle Fred’s brother and he will forever be a part of our family. We are holding your family in our hearts and lifting you in prayer. May God wrap His arms around you and give you peace.
Dearest Baby Brother, your passing has left a huge void in our Family. We had such hope that you would overcome these health challenges and that we once again would enjoy Family time together. Without your love, support, compassion, and help, we are lost. Not a day will go by without us shedding tears for you. You will always be in our memories and discussions. We pray that we will be able to find the strength and in what time we have left. Rest in peace and know that you will always be loved.
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Joe at CP Rail and he was such a great man. He would always answer his phone with a smile on his face and be delighted to help me in any way that I can. I always looked forward to speaking with Joe as he would brighten up my day. Joe was always full of laughter, even when times were tough in the workplace he could lift anyone’s heart up. He is truly an angel and one of a kind. Rest in peace Joe.
My condolences to Elaine and family. Joe was a super nice person whose legacy lives on in everyone he met. May his memory be a blessing.
Dearest Joe. My baby brother my friend. All our hearts are broken. We love you so very much . Elaine I know how much you hurt. Joe loved you so very much as you have loved him. We are so fortunate to have you as a sister. Jennifer and Joey you are the jewels in my brothers crown. His beautiful family is his pride and joy.
Rest peacefully dearest brother. I love you.
Our sincere condolences to the Bielmeier family. I worked with Joe at CP Rail for many years and always found him to be a good friend and coworker. It is so sad that he has passed at such a young age, and I’m certain that Elaine, their children, and all of the Bielmeier family will miss him terribly. I will always remember him as such a good man, friend, and work mate. I pray that you will rest in peace Joe.
I met Joe when I transferred to our Toronto CP Rail office in 1981 and he became an instant friend as he was also a long time suffering Leaf fan! He was very helpful with work questions as well as getting to know the Toronto area.
My sincerest condolences to Elaine and children. Rest in peace Joe.
My deepest condolences to Jennifer and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Joe’s passing is a stark reminder that existence is fragile. Through my 50+ years association with the extended Bielmeier family, I had many opportunities to be in Joe’s presence. I can simply say he was an exceptionally good person. And toward the end, how fortunate for him to have the extraordinary support of the respective families to see him through.
My condolences to all family members, and most particularly Elaine, Jennifer, and Joey
Requiescant in pace.
Sending our deepest condolences and sympathy for your loss. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
Unfortunately, I was not able to meet Joe again since you all visited us back in 2012 here in Germany. But I remember Joe as a very nice and gentle man who was always good for a joke and he made me laugh regularly during his stay.
Im very saddened about his passing and he will always be in our thougts.
With my deepest condolences, Michael
Joe was a wonderful caring human being and friend. Joe took time out
twice to be with me while I had my 2 cataract surgeries and for around
the last 5 years that I worked at CPR we sat next to each other working
our claims. Joe was a more than a great help during those last years as
his kindness and willingness to assist was always present – he made
being there bearable. I know that we all will miss Joe.
To the Bielmeier family, Elaine, Jennifer, and Joey, I’m very sorry for your loss. He was very friendly and kind, may he rest in peace. Our prayers to you all.
I had the honor to learn and work with Joe in these recent years before his retirement from CP. I consider this time to be a highlight in my career with CP. A man very much dedicated to this craft, delivering wisdom and professionalism. My condolences to his family and friends during this time. May he rest in peace.
Dear Bielmeier family..

I believe my sister and I last saw Joe and family at his wedding at St. Pat,s.
We were childood friends of the Bielmeier siblings.
Again please accept my heartfelt condolences.
Dear Bielmeier siblings, my deepest condolences to you all. Like my.sister Monica I have vivid memories of Joe as a child. So sad to hear about his passing .
Elaine, Jennifer & Joey
As we gather around for family time we will always have loving memories of Joe. He was a kind, understanding person with patience. Memories is what keeps us together and knowing we shared lots of good times is precious. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.
