Joe worked for most of his life in ocean transportation,

him to travel all over the world and he continued to

enjoy traveling for many years after his retirement.

He is predeceased by his wife Rita, daughter Lisa and

brother Ed. He is survived by his daughter Kathy and

her husband Terry, grandchildren Andrew and Emily

and brother Alois. He also leaves behind his partner

Annette Hiom and her sons Paul (Kathleen) and Phillip

(Grace). He will be missed by his two special grand

children Jacob and Rhianna who loved their Papa Joe

dearly. Joe loved his many nieces and nephews and

enjoyed keeping up to date with their pursuits around

the world.
