Just wanted to express our deepest sympathy in the recent loss of your dad who was such a kind man, loving father and husband and dedicated Catholic and a wonderful neighbour for many years. My husband Chris and l were so sorry to hear of his passing. No matter where l saw him, whether it be in passing through from his outdoor shed on his way into the house on Dovedale Drive or meeting up with him in the grocery store, your dad always took the time to say hello and ask how we were. Chris and l would see him at church often and even our kids, when little, would always get a smile and hello from "Mr. Joe" as they called him. Our thoughts and prayers are with your dad and you all at this difficult time, but l know your cherished memories of your loving father will be of great comfort now and always. God Bless!

Sincerely, Chris and Trudy MacGregor and family

It was a beautiful service for a truly extraordinary man that I have referred to my whole life as Nannu Joe. I will never forget the time he came to see me personally after my Nannu Paul passed away to tell me that he was there for me if I ever needed anything I would have gone to my Nannu for, and that he was my Nannu now. A caring and loving man with such a glowing and endearing personality. You will be missed Nannu Joe. The world needs more like you.

My sincere condolences go out to the entire Galea family, with love and respect.
