Joseph Teminsky, beloved husband of Maureen passed away on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 at the age of 78 years.
Joe was born in Lamont, AB on November 28, 1925 and at the age of sixteen, he joined the Royal Canadian Navy. After the war, he moved to Vancouver and attended UBC. Joe began working for Sereth Lumber and during this time met his wife Maureen.
