I knew Joe briefly and the struggles he had. Believing now he is at peace. Praising God for his sister Linda & brother-in-law Pastor Ken Roth for their dedication and comfort to Joe.

You also forgot to mention his wife elizabeth Cronk. She still cared for him. Was still in touch with him. They had a lot of great times together. She should be included in his obituary. While they may have been separated they remained friends. Over 30 years of knowing a person. Rip Joe. Lots of great memories with you. Say hi to grandma and grandpa for me. Rip

We're not part of the immediate family, but our paths crossed. Joe may have passed on, but he is not forgotten. We pray that his family and friends will be comforted knowing that Joe is now beyond pain and in the hands of a merciful Heavenly Father.

I worked with Joe for two summers at Selkirk Provincial Park back in the late ‘70’s. Many good times shared and he was a fine friend and work companion.
