It is with heavy hearts, that we announce the passing of Joseph, October 7, 2019 in the Pontiac Community Hospital, Shawville, Quebec, at the age of 81. Loving and devoted husband to Pauline. Our journey together began 45 years ago. Joe and I enjoyed working side by side over the years. It was a merciful passing as the ALS diagnosis would have been terrible moving forward. He fought hard but the disease overtook him. Joseph ran a central microfilm unit at the Public Archives for many years. Predeceased by his parents Mary and Bob Maxwell, and sister Maureen. Devoted father to Pamela, grandfather to Blaze, brother to Nancy (late Jerry), and Sharon (Mike). Very special brother-in-law to Denise (Ernie), Louise (Wesley), Helene (Tony), John (Susie), Nicole (Jean) and Mike Mecca. Special son-in-law to Claire Ducharme and the late John Ducharme. He leaves behind many precious nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Ingrid Wittig for the compassion and support during this difficult time. A private Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. In memory of Joe, “Kind Gestures” would be most appreciated.
