It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved dad, father-in-law and grandpa. Joseph passed away peacefully after a short illness at Peace Arch Hospital and Hospice in White Rock, BC. Joseph was born in Vikartovce, Slovakia and came to Canada in 1949. He met the love of his life, Elvira, in Toronto in 1952; they married and settled in Calgary in 1953. Joe worked with the City of Calgary Electric System up to his retirement and was a member of the IBEW. Joe moved from Calgary to South Surrey (White Rock) in 1997 and will be remembered by his many friends in both Calgary and BC. He is survived by two sons, David (Sandy) of Calgary and Steven (Anna) and two granddaughters, Melaina and Holly, of Bloomington, Ill. Joe is also survived by a brother, Karol, in Slovakia. Joe was predeceased by his wife, Elvira, of 38 years, in 1991. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, September 20 at 1pm in Sts Cyril and Methodius (Slovak) Church, 472 East 8th Ave, New Westminster, BC (www.cyrilmetod.org). The funeral and burial will be held in Calgary the following week. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Peace Arch Hospice. Condolences may be offered at www.fostersgardenchapel.net
