    We are so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. We have lived next door to Joe and Stella for the past 14 years and will miss seeing him working in the yard, our chats across the fence and his stories of living in Winnipeg. Our prayers and thoughts are with Stella and the family.

    My memories of Joe will always be on the Beach at the Royal Plantation Jamaica. His wit, humor, and antics always kept us on our toes. Though far to few trips were spent together, Joe had a way of making me feel he had always been a part of my life. I offer my condolences to Stella, Brenda, Richard, and family,
    With Love
    Brett Bicksler
