Godfather to myself, great uncle to Stephanie Kucbel, Andrew Kucbel, Eric Kucbel, Jeremie Kucbel
and Benjamin Couture-Kucbel. Great memories at 650 Cote-Vertu in St Laurent Quebec Canada, a house that his
father Frank Kucbel along with brothers Frank Kucbel, Stanley Kucbel and himself built. Even to this day everytime i smell Tueros cigars it reminds me of Uncle Joe. Playing golf as a foresome with my dad Stanley, Uncle Frank and Uncle Joe as a kid was priceless i will never forget you or my Godmother Lily Kucbel. RIP
Our deepest condolences.

With The passing of Joseph (Joe), it's a whole generation that leaves us. Third son of Frank Kucbel and Othelia Canderra, he is predeceased by his older brothers, Frank and Stanley. I will remember Joe for his kindness and his sensitivity. I have fond memories of Christmases passed at the Kucbel home in Ville Saint-Laurent, Quebec where traditional slovak food was served and old country values were shared. As a young quebecois francophone, this tightly knit immigrant family much impressed me with their generosity and hospitality. My heart felt regards and sympathy to his lovely and lively wife, Gladys.

With much love and compassion from Montreal,

Alain Saumier and Diane Kucbel-Saumier
