It is with great sadness that we learned of Uncle Joe's passing; a man who always had a funny story to tell and a laugh to share.

Our hearts goes out to Auntie Romana and cousin Halina during these sad times. Uncle Joe will be missed but never forgotten.

Godspeed to you, Uncle Joe, on your next journey.

Dear Halina and Romana,
Sorry to hear of the passing of Joe.
He will be missed around the Christmas Eve gathering where we met at the Kaminski's. I always remember his great conversation of the days of old & current day times while sipping his red wine along with the occasional shot with boys. You were fortunate to have your dad & husband with you both for so long.
He will be missed.
God Bless,
Linda

An ocean divides our families but our hearts today are closer than ever before. Our beloved 'Uncle Joe' has passed away, someone we all hold such fond and loving memories of. The kindest, warmest and most generous of men, we will miss you, Uncle Joe. From the great memories we all made when you visited us in Manchester, England to the fantastic moments your own home in Hamilton, Ontario created for many of us. Donna and Kate making memories with Nanna (your sister), who we know you will be re-united with, and Pete travelling with a friend aged 16, lifelong memories were made with you, Halina and Roma - we are eternally grateful for.

Irene, Roy and Ricky always truly loved their 'Uncle Joe' as did your brothers and sisters, they all had their own special bond that will also never be forgotten, our deepest sympathy to our Auntie Roma and dear cousin, Halina. xxxxxxxxxx

From The Taylor and the Guerriero families- with love.

TERRY HOLDER

February 24, 2021

Joe was a great neighbour. I always looked forward to our talks over the fence or in the driveway. He was always willing to help. I will always remember when I was young I had to tie a tie for a school function. My dad wasn't home, so I ran nextdoor and asked Joe for help. He was excited to help with that great big smile and gave me a pat on the back as I left. He was a great man and will be dearly missed.
