January 9, 1926 – April 29, 2012
We sadly announce the passing of our father and grandfather on Sunday, April 29, 2012 at the age of 86.
Born in Lochgelly, Scotland, he came to Canada in 1959, leaving the coal mines behind and beginning a new life here with his family. He worked for the UFA Coop for twenty nine years, first in Edmonton and Lethbridge, then eventually becoming the Manager of their Farm Supply Division in Calgary. Whether as a miner or an accountant, a husband, father or grandfather, he was truly the best of the best. His greatest love in life was his family, especially his wife and soul mate Cathy, who predeceased him in 2011.
Left to mourn are his daughter Margaret Daniels and her husband Dennis; son Tom Miller, son-in-law Len Kotschorek and his five grandchildren, Carrie Daniels (Fiancé David Ryan), Christy Daniels (Fiancé Kurt Repchuk), Jeff Daniels (“bonnie wee lass” Lindsay Aiken) and Josie and Justin Kotschorek.
Besides his beloved wife Cathy, he was also predeceased by his daughter Anne Kotschorek in 2006.
A Private Family Service will be held. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
Appreciation is gratefully expressed to Dr. Stassen and nurses Catherine and Terry on unit 49 at the Peter Lougheed Hospital for their exceptional care and compassion during Joe’s final days, and to the staff of the Colonel Belcher Senior’s Residences for their endless kindness and support.
