He was very good at his job and took pride in his work. Joe helped a lot of people along the way. Joe was also known as the life of the party the funny guy anything for a laugh kinda guy.

Joey was a friend to me when I came east. I was an air ambulance para med for STARS. We kept in touch when he went west! However, perhaps not enough! My partner and I are extending condolences to his family. You are in our prayers!

You are going be be missed by so many Joe. I'l always remember seeing you in digby , having those little chats that lasted for an hour , the laughs we shared and most of all the fun we had playing softball together. I think we had the most fun and so many laughs at the ball field and once you started us laughing you never let us stop. I also will remember the more serious talks we had about our mental health problems, sometimes trying to help one another though a rough time , other times trying to just give each other an ear that would listen . I'll always remember you Joe, you was a"one of a kind" type of guy and how you never called me by my name , you always called me "Brother " and we were just that- Brothers. Rest easy Joe , your pain is gone, keep laughing , We'll all be there for a good game of ball some day. Love you Brother. Gordie
