He was always there to lend a helping hand, enjoy a cup of coffee with a chat, take his grandchildren for walks to see the trains, and create beautiful woodcrafts.
Joe is predeceased by his dear wife Hilly, who is waiting to see him again. He is survived by his loving daughter Annette, her husband Michael, and Joe's adoring grandchildren, Alexander and Abigail, who will miss him deeply. Joe is also survived by his son Edward.
