  1. Joe made me laugh constantly. He kept me up to date with all the oldies music video clips. Joe taught me the meaning of PITA. He was one of my best friends at work. I will never forget Joe’s positive attitude and his everlasting smile. RIP Joseph.

  2. To Sheila, Jacquie and Family, we are so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. Our thoughts are with you.

  3. I met Joe 23 years ago, working at AAFC; Joe was my 1st Team Manager. He was such a kind and gentle man – very fatherly – he made me feel like he genuinely cared about me which isn’t what you’d expect from a coworker, but that was our sweet Joe. We never lost contact when he retired from Ag to take care of his health. We chatted a lot over the last few years, as my young daughter battled Cancer; ironically she was diagnosed on October 20, 2021. He encouraged me to lean heavily on my faith and often prayed with me which seemed to bring us all comfort. He shared many bad ‘dad jokes’ and puns but also had much wisdom. It is with a heavy heart that I share these stories today. My heart is broken for the loss of such a good man.
    My deepest condolences to the family.

  4. We first met Joe & Sheila in May 1982 when I was posted to Boissevain RCMP detachment as a brand new recruit. My wife Barbara, Joe, Sheila and I became very close friends. We sent countless hours laughing and joking over so many long dinners and other social events. I was transferred from Manitoba to Ontario in 1990 but we maintained our friendship throughout all those years. Joe was one of the most loyal, funny, compassionate and generous persons we have ever known. We are so saddened.

    Joe was an amazing coworker and sincere friend . Our years together at RBC will never be forgotten by myself and all our staff that looked up to Joe for his sincerity and gentle and caring ways . There was never a dull moment in our daily routines . I honestly can say that it was Joe that made the difference in a positive working and fun atmosphere. He was so loved by staff & customers for his positive attitude .
    He was a ray of hope & encouragement to my brother Gord, during his time of illness and distress , which our family so much appreciated . I know they’re discussing politics and the state of our nation in Heaven .
    Rest in peace . Until we all meet again !
    Love, Betty & family

  10. So sorry to hear of Joe’s passing! Our heartfelt condolences go to Sheila, Jacquie & family. Lydia & I met Joe & Sheila through our mutual friends Barb & Tino Liokossis in the early eighties while posted at Boissevain Det. We spent many good times together at Halloween, Christmas parties, X-country skiing & social evenings at one another’s homes. Joe was a gentle giant and a true gentleman. His sense of humour and wit was second to none & his friendship was true. I was pleased to reconnect with him on Facebook a couple of years ago! R.I.P. Joe. You will be missed!

  11. Joe was a truly unforgettable, fun loving, gentle man who freely shared his loyal friendship with so many. Gord and I first met Joe and Sheila at a Kinsmen convention where we learned of their pending move to Selkirk. We became fast friends and made many special memories together. Rest now buddy, your ‘bro’ Gord will be waiting.
