Joe was born November 30, 1932 on the farm in Innisfree, Alberta.

He spent his early life farming on the family farm until the age of 20. At that time he bought his first single axle gravel truck. He worked in Edmonton and surrounding areas for a few years until he made enough Monday to buy a bigger truck. With that truck, Joe then found employment with Peter Kiwit and other road building companies that took Joe to all corners of Alberta. He worked there Spring through Fall, and in the Winter hauling snow for the City Of Edmonton.

In 1978, Joe became a steady full time contractor for the City of Edmonton as an owner/ operator with his truck. He also, operated a company JDR. A trucking and bobcat company, with which he also was contracted with the city. Operating, along with his sons. He worked for the City until he retired in 1995.

Joe was a hard worker and one of his monumental accomplishments was that he was most proud of was the demolition of a 4 story apartment building. This would have been a large job for a big, company with heavy equipment. But Joe, with little help...tore down that building, salvaged all the fixtures and lumber right to the ground. People in neighboring buildings would look in amazement that man was taking down this huge complex. After a few years of working at this, people got to know him and would watch him for entertainment. They would even bring him food because Joe would never take a break. He was very proud of that accomplishment.

Joe was a very determined man. He couldn't find a ride to go and get his motor home to go on a family trip. So he just hopped on a 10 Speed bike and pedaled 42 kilometers to Cooking Lake to his brothers farm, because it just had to be done.

Joe always put everyone first. He would give complete strangers a ride if they need one. Whenever anyone need a hand, he was there, putting his own work on hold.

He was always there for his children. They always had nice clothes and never needed anything.

It never was a surprise to see Joe in his garage or on the driveway, swinging a hammer, repairing his truck at 10 o'clock at night, but only after he was in the kitchen making his famous gourmet creations for his kids. Joe was a great cook as well
It was known by many people that nobody made tastier turkey and stuffing than Joe! When Joe made a meal....he made it large! His cabbage rolls were as big as burritos and his meatballs were the size of small pumpkins. His meals were always a hit and anybody was free to come over.

He lived his Golden Years traveling, gardening and spending time at his acreage.

Joe will be sadly missed by his children, families and grandson.

I never met Mr. Petroskey, but heard all about the shenanigans that he would get into from his daughter Lisa. He had a light inside him that shone for everyone to see. He can now look over his loved ones from a better place. My condolences to Lisa and her family.
