CHAY, Joseph Henry

September 24, 1934 – Wolseley, Saskatchewan
December 31, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving father and grandfather, Joseph Chay of Calgary, Alberta. Joseph passed away on Monday, December 31, 2018 at the age of 84 years.

Joseph Chay was a hard working and talented man; from starting his own successful business, to hunting, fishing, or creating his own woodwork in his spare time. Joseph was also an avid sports fan, who loved kicking back in his recliner to cheer on his favourite team – the Rough Riders. Joseph absolutely adored his wife Elfrieda Chay, and cherished the time spent with his children and grandchildren. He particularly loved family gatherings around the holidays – especially Christmas and New Years dinners.

Joseph is survived by his two daughters, Belinda Schulz and Wanda Baker, of Calgary, AB; two sons Joe Jr. and Les Chay of Regina, SK; and his ten grandchildren, Jessica Schulz, Camille Schulz, and Brittany Schulz of Calgary, AB, Amanda Chay of Rossland, B.C., Rachelle Chay of Kelowna, B.C., Nathan Chay, Tyler Chay, Ella Chay of Regina, SK, Hailey Baker, and Aiden Baker of Calgary, AB.

He was predeceased by his beloved son Glen Meredith Chay; two brothers, John Chay and Alex Chay; four sisters, Rose Ignatescu, Mary Towers, Daisy Chay and Elva Williams; and his loving wife Elfrieda Chay.

As per Joseph’s wishes, no Funeral Service will take place. Condolences may be forwarded through

In living memory of Joseph Chay, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. CALGARY, AB, T3G 2T3, Telephone: 403-241-0044.
