JOSEPH (JOE) F. MCDONALD Peacefully passed away with his family by his side on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at Scarborough General Hospital. Dear husband of Anna for 49 years, loving father to Michael and Danny (Lesley) and grandpa to Ryan and Kaitlyn Ann. Joe enjoyed a lifelong career within the Canadian jewellery industry and his early hockey passion was coaching The Don Mills Comets. His great sense of humour, his stories and his generosity were only small parts of what earned him the friendships and respect of all who knew him. Joe was born in Owen Sound on November 6, 1938, son of Leo (deceased) and Mabel (deceased), a loving brother to Patricia, Art, Jane, Tim and Suzanne. Predeceased by Jack, Anne, Eddie, Burt and Bill. He will also be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews and an immeasurable number of friends. In keeping with Dad's wishes, there will be no funeral. An interment of his ashes and celebration of his life will take place at a later date. Online condolences at "And while he lies in a long earned peaceful sleep, his memory we shall FOREVER keep"
