elevated t1DEc Obituary
Joe passed away peacefully and thankfully at home on February 21st, 2019, surrounded by his adoring family. After a two year battle with cancer, he was grateful that our Lord called him home. Born in Slovenia, Joe immigrated to Canada in 1958 and soon after married his first wife, Neza who predeceased him in 1980. He is also predeceased by both parents, Maria and Janez of Slovenia.
elevated t1DEc Joe will be deeply missed by his loving wife of thirty-one years, Pauline Rose and his brother John. He will be dearly missed by his children, Josephine (Dave), Mary (Elvis) and Ryan (Krystal). Grampa/Bumpa will be forever cherished by his six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
elevated t1DEc Joe was a a member of The Plumbers and Steamfitters Union, Local 46 close to forty years. He was also a founding member of the Slovenian Hunters and Anglers Club, Alliston, Ont. His passion, after hunting, was building our beautiful family home in Niagara on the Lake and caring for the grounds and stream. He loved cruising and spending time at our home away from home in Mexico.
