Beloved husband of Trudy. Loving step-father of Joe (Mary Ann). Dear brother of Patti (Dan),
John and Albert. Cherished uncle of Ashley. Dearest son-in-law of Patrick and Bobbie. Brother-in-law of Debbie (Dennis), Bernie (Meri) and Roberta (Phil). Proud and doting Grampy of Nadine.
Predeceased by his mother Patricia Rutt, by his sister Colleen and by his twin brother Jimmy.
Joey was a locksmith by trade and a jack of all trades in life. His positive outlook and stubborn perseverance through tough times was greatly admired by those closest to him. His playful taunting of those he loved always left us with a smile on our faces, even if we were also rolling our eyes! He will be sadly missed by his Onward Hardware family, where he worked in customer service for eight years. He enjoyed cooking, woodworking and spending time with his family and friends. He especially cherished the times spent with his only grandchild, Nadine.
Cremation has taken place. A private family celebration of life will take place Saturday Nov 6,
2021 as well as private arrangements in Québec.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to Crohn’s & Colitis Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation as expressions of sympathy.
