Dad passed away in his sleep January twelfth, at the age of 96.
He is loved and remembered by Helen, his wife of seventy three years, daughter Joanne, sons Wayne (Sandy), Doug (Debbie), many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Joe was well known for his work ethic through out his life. He and Helen worked side by side at their second home in White Rock (building rock walls, moving kitchens and bedrooms), in preparation for the day they would become full time residents of their beloved White Rock.
For many years he and Helen were proprietors of Odin’s bed and breakfast on Marine Drive. As well he maintained and expanded the area up the hill from east beach which was across from his residence, some people referred to this area as Odin’s point.
A neighbour always referred to him as the unofficial mayor of Marine Drive. Dad was a D Day Veteran and was named a Knight of the French Legion of Honour for his service to France during the 2nd World War.
We miss you Dad. Rest In Peace. Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 26th from 12pm – 3 pm at Spencer Green Clubhouse 21138 – 88th, Langley.
