Joseph Lawrence Pertusati
On August 12, 2011 our family lost my husband, my sons lost their awesome father, and my grandchildren lost their Papa, Joseph Pertusati. On Nov. 26, 2012, we lost my wonderful son Joseph after a year long battle with throat cancer. He fought a long and hard battle through pain and treatments. But he lost the battle. Our family is devastated from losing both of our Joe's. Joe was born in Palm Springs, California. We returned to Ont. 2 years later where he lived most of his life. Joey leaves his wife Debbie, 2 wonderful children Amanda and Joseph, brothers Dennis and Mark, 1 niece Elise, and 3 nephews Vince, Danny and Mike. We mourn together for our Joe's. We miss Joey's zest for life, his sense of humor and his goodness. Joey truly admired my sister, his Auntie "O" as she did him. The feeling was mutual. May she be comforted by the fact that Joey is with his father, Mama and Papa, Uncle Luigi, Olga's husband. We mourn and miss Joey, but know he is free from pain and walks with his beloved father. We will meet again some day. Remember, Life is a journey, not a destination. Love you my boy from Mom. A celebration of Joe's life will be held at the family home in January.
