Justito (Jojie) Bernardo passed away on Saturday, November 3, 2007 at the Foothills Medical Centre at the age of 47 years.
Jojie was born on December 30, 1959 in Calapan City, Or. Mindoro, Philippines. He graduated from Adamson University in Manila as a Civil Engineer. In June 1982 Jojie moved to Canada to begin his new life. He met his wife Chona and they were married on August 18, 1990. In 2002 he moved to California for a job contract with his family and settled there for four years. Jojie then came back to Calgary in the summer of 2006. He enjoyed and had a passion for carpentry.
