March 14, 1939 – June 26, 2010
All the angels are rejoicing, as one more faithful servant, enters the kingdom of God. Joseph went home peacefully to be with our Lord and Saviour, on Saturday, June 26 at the age of 71 years old.
He will always be remembered for his kind generosity and as a humble man, the love he shared for his children and grandchildren. He had many accomplishments in his life time, thoroughbred racing, chuckwagons, farming, ranching, the one he took most pride in was when he competed in the Calgary Stampede. His great love was planting the seed and leading his children to come to know the Lord as our personal saviour.
