Russell (predeceased) and Leland.
Dear godson of Tom Ense and Lorraine Migwans.
Lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Joe’s walk on this earth was of a kind and gentle nature. He was a man of his word and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need.  Joe was a pet lover, a recycler and an athlete.  He loved the game of basketball.  Joe faced his fears. He didn’t care about materialistic material. He cared about how everyone lived and wanted to put a smile on everyone’s face.   Joe always saw the humour in everything and loved to tease.

Family and friends will gather at the
M’Chigeeng Community Complex
starting on Wednesday
Funeral Service
3:30 pm Friday July 13, 2018
