FETCHKO, Joseph Peter Born in Powell River, BC April 22, 1930. Joe died peacefully on May 26, 2014 at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Joe graduated from Brooks High School in 1949 and went on to work in the pulp and paper mill in Powell River as an apprentice electrician. He met and married Patricia Lacy and together they had eight children Rita, Joycenne, Peter, Lance, Andrew, Anne, John and Eric. In 1964 he moved his family to Crofton BC and continued his career in Crofton Pulp and Paper mill until his retirement. Joe enjoyed the outdoors. His hobbies were hunting, fishing and scuba diving. He was an avid scuba diver and was very involved in the scuba diving community in Powell River. He taught the sport as well as wrote a column for the local paper and was President of the local club. Joe was especially proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his first wife Patricia, in 1986, his daughter Anne Meares in 2011, his second wife Jacquie (Goode) in 2013 and his beloved dog, Buto. He is sorely missed by his cat Oliver. The family would like to thank all the staff at Westshore Lodge for their care and support while Joe and Jacquie lived out their final years, his companion/caregiver Lori Tait for being such a good friend tending to his daily needs, and the staff of 7 North and 6 South at the Jubilee for the wonderful care and compassion in the final weeks of Joes life.
