The family of Joe Rokosh sadly announce his passing on Friday, December 5 at the age 91 years.
Joe was born on the family farm near Hubbard, Sask. He was one of 8 brothers and 3 sisters. He will always be remembered for his wonderful sense of humour, his adventurous personality, and his incredible, always inventive and imaginative mind.
Joe is survived by two brothers, Stan and Ted, and by his youngest sister, Emily. Joe will be dearly missed by his four children: Greg (Gillian) Rokosh, Elaine (John) Elick, Tony, and Norm (Louise) Rokosh; his grandchildren: Amanda, Jennifer, Kathy, Mickey, James, Emma, Sylvie and Matthew; and his “great” grandchildren James, Olivia, Mikey, Brittany, Madison and Charlie. He was pre-deceased by the love of his life, Jean, in 1995.
May he now rest in the arms of Jesus.
