Joseph emigrated from Hungary to Canada in 1936 and settled in East Coulee, AB with his mother, father and sister Mary. He was a shoemaker and also worked for the University of Calgary for 20 years. Joe was a master gardener who took great pride in sharing his beautiful gardens with family and friends.

Together, they enjoyed their lives in beautiful Arbour Lake. After Joe lost his sight, his sister Mary took on the job to help Joe with the tasks he was no longer able to do. Joe’s sense of humor, positive attitude and zest for life will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
