“Memories are something no one can steal.”
Joe sadly passed away on the 14th October at the Belong Care Village, Crewe, aged 84 years knowing he was loved and cared for by his devoted family.
The beloved husband of Gwen. Devoted dad of Susan, Carole and Peter. Cherished grandad of Emma and Adam. Loving great grandad of Ava, Luna, Ophelia and Imogen. Also a dear brother of Rob, Michael, Paul, Brian, Kieron, Lillie and the late Noel.
Joe was born in Dublin on Monday 28th January 1935 to proud parents Joseph and Lillie. After his education he moved across to England, aged 22 years when he was head-hunted after becoming an apprentice of the year. He worked for Rolls Royce as a design engineer and was also heavily involved in the pension fund there. Towards the end of his working life he became a lollypop man, finally retiring in 1992.
He loved gardening in his spare time and was also handy at D.I.Y. He also loved wildlife. The family’s favourite holiday destination was Wales.
Joe was a fair-minded family man, a typical straight-talking Irishman!
A Requiem Mass of Thanksgiving for his life will take place on Tuesday 29th October in St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception RC Church, Crewe at 10.30am, followed by cremation at Crewe Crematorium.
Donations in memory of Joe will be gratefully received on behalf of Dementia UK.
