MARCEL "JOE" HONORÉ GODFREY Peacefully on Sunday, August 24, 2014, at the age of 84, after an epic battle with multiple health issues. Funny, fussy, bossy and brave, he was a true character who lived and learned until the end. Best friend and 62-year partner to wife Helen Godfrey. Unforgettably opinionated father to Trish and Jamie, Ian and Richard, Lisa and Justin; grandfather to Jamieson, Adam, and Leo. Enchanted Great- Grandpa of Beatrice. Predeceased by 7 siblings. Joe Godfrey was a longtime GM employee, and Past President of Local 303. He was a student of tai chi, music, woodworking and painting. A progressive, decent man, who will continue to be loved and remembered. We salute and thank the compassionate nurses at Bridgepoint Hospital's 6 North, as did he. The family will receive friends at the HUMPHREY FUNERAL HOME A.W. MILES - NEWBIGGING CHAPEL, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. Thursday, August 28. In lieu of flowers, consider a Toronto charity in honour of a Toronto boy. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through humphreymilesnewbigging.com
