McKAY, Joseph McKinnon
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Joe after a long battle with dementia at the age of 83. He is survived by his loving wife Dorothy, of 56 years; his children Rod (Donna), Kevin (Sharon) and Karen (Ray); his 7 grandchildren Bradley (Dene), Kevin Jr (Erika), Courtney, Trevor, Michael, Alex, Derek, and Rona, his longtime caregiver. Joe left England for Canada in 1954, making his first home in Calgary. In his job as auditor with Mannix Co, he travelled Western Canada including Squamish, where he met Dorothy the local school teacher
. The two
were married and soon started their family in Vancouver. We will lovingly remember Joe for his practical jokes, his great sense of humour and his many one liners. We would like to thank the care aides and nurses at Capilano Care for their care and compassion. A Celebration of Joe's Life will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the Boal Chapel 1505 Lillooet Road North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.
