Joe was well a respected individual in our community, who shared passion in restoring antique vehicles. He was employed for 42 years at Ready Rentals Ltd, obtaining the position of Manager. Prior to this, he worked at Ritchie’s Building and Flooring Centre.
At the end of the day, the most important thing in Joe’s life was his family. Although he was diagnosed with cancer, Joe never gave up on the valiant battle and made sure that he lived each day like it would be his last. He was an inspiration to all of us and taught many what it was like to be a good, honest and true person.
