Giuseppe "Joe" Moscato

May 9, 1959June 1, 2021

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Giuseppe (Joe) on June 1st, 2021. Words cannot express the grief and devastation we feel. He leaves behind his wife Karin, children, Katrina, Tyler, Michael and Matthew and his beloved dog Eddy. Joe was a dedicated Father and was very involved in his children's sports while they were growing up. You could often find him coaching, or doing the clock at games. Joe loved football, but especially the Huskies, His sons and him would go and watch them play. Joe and his wife Karin enjoyed many Seattle Huskie weekends girls shopped and guys watched the game. He had season tickets to the BC lions, and all the kids would take turns going to the games with him. Joe was a wonderful storyteller, he could fill a room with laughter and he wasn't shy. He often shared stories about growing up in North Burnaby, his SFU antics, and whatever obsession he was currently researching at the time. Joe always made you feel right at home, and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him. For those of you who would like to pay their respects to Joe and his family we invite you to a walk through viewing at Bell Funeral home on Thursday June 17th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm Due to COVID restrictions a closed private service will take place for the family on Friday June 18th at 11:00 am and it will be live streamed at:;!!M2D_dUfSiN4E!bZFpfTO0XUwhRZxQs6S3oRXhCnBS7_LcO0MbQ2sluH-7OUiV-XyCTqRE3eEgsjFG3RFU55GkwQ$

I am a neighbor of Joe. I knew him only about 1 & half year. His kindness and love for others inspired me. I enjoyed chatting with him while he was walking with the dog Eddy. I couldn't believe he left us so fast to heaven and rest in peace there. I will always remember him as my friend and kindest neighbor forever.

I am so sorry for your loss, and I am feeling the pain and sadness and can only imagine how hard it is for all of you. Joe was a good soul who had a big heart and an easy and wonderful way about him that made it a true joy to be around. He is a dear friend that will be forever in my mind and always around because I feel he is not gone and he is will always be around in someway to everyone that had the honour of knowing him. I loved his sense of humour.
I remember when he was a school teacher and he wanted to come to his class to talk about woodworking and carpentry,I didn't want to do it but seeing was Joe I went in and had a nice chat with the students and there was Joe with a big smile on his face loving it.
I will truly miss Joe but know wherever he is he is making good friends and making them enjoy his presence and also that he is checking on everything going on here as well. Heaven just got themselves a good one for sure. Be blessed and know myself and alot of us are thinking of you all and would help you in a heartbeat if ever needed.

Dear Karin, Katrina and the entire Moscato family;
I am deeply saddened and still in shock over the loss of your beloved Husband and Dad.
I think back to the early days at Wayburne with Christmas parties and egg hunts at work and more recently when i would see Joe at meetings he always had a big smile that would light up the room. His laugh was infectious and never did he ever get angry. Whenever you were with Joe you knew there would be lots of laughter and storytelling.
I cant imagine your grief right now, but do know Joe's time with us was always positive and he will be truly missed by all who knew him. He truly has left an "empty garden". God bless.

Dear Moscato Family,
I was in disbelief when I heard the news. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Joe a few times and always appreciated not only his wise advice but also that he took the time to chat, especially in the last year when there were fewer people in the office. I knew he was a real family man as I was fortunate enough to share the article with him from the Province on his daughter's successful business and we swapped stories about our sons. I enjoyed the story of his dog making his TV appearance. I know your family has suffered a tremendous loss and I pray for you that God provides you the strength, faith and comfort of his memories at this difficult time. I pray that you continue to feel his strong presence surround you all, both now and in the future.

My goodness, the news about Joe made me stop and think about his leaving us at such an early time of his life. So sad. Cousin Joe enjoyed many a football game with me at the Lions and at my Super Bowl Parties over the years.
Joe will always be a part of my fondest memories. Brian

Dear Moscato family,
I, as everybody else, was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Joes sudden passing. I worked with Joe over the years at the Corporation and had nothing but the utmost respect for him. Joe always had a positive attitude and an infectious energy that brought out the best in those around him. He was truly an amazing , kind individual who was so very proud of his family and all of their accomplishments. My heart aches for you , his wonderful family, his friends and his work family. He will leave such a huge void and will be missed by so many. Take care, Liz Baadsvik

Dear Moscato Family:
Please accept my sincerest condolences. I knew Joe since grade 3 and fate or coincidence allowed us to connect just frequently enough for me to think of him as one of the ongoing connections in my life. We took different career paths and I moved from the Lower Mainland. Joe was always a welcome guy from the "old neighborhood" to me. I will always remember his humor and decency. I am now so very glad I got to see him one last time in 2018 in Sechelt.

I feel an emptiness due to his passing. The world was a better place when he was in it.

It’s so hard for anyone to believe Joe is physically gone, he was too young to leave. We can’t begin to imagine how you feel Karin, Katrina, Michael and Mathew. ❤️ We had plans for last Sunday. We missed you both deeply. It’s the gentle, kind, good ones that leave the largest void. We can’t take your unspeakable grief away Karin and family, but we can stand close while you move through it. A memory from a really fun day with the Moscatos in Mexico a couple years ago. 💕

Dear Karin and Moscato family,

We are so deeply sorry for the heart wrenching loss of Joe. Our hearts and prayers are with your family.

He was always so genuinely kind, positive and wonderful to everyone. I had the privilege of working with him for years. He was one of those precious people who actually cared about you - it had nothing to do with work, or how you knew him, he just had this way of making you feel significant. He was the resident positive spirit and Gentleman, and no matter what was going on around him, he always made time for you. He had the best sense of humour and loved a good laugh. He always beamed when talking about his family, you were all the Loves of his Life. ♥️

Thank you so much, Joe, for your genuine support and caring nature to everyone. You were adored by all, and it truly will not be the same without you. God bless all of you.
