It is with great sadness that the family of Joseph Paquette announce his passing on June 4, 2022, in his 100th year. He will be forever missed by Maisie, his wife of 76 years; and his three children, Laurie (Geoff), Wayne, and Debra (Rick). Joseph was a loving grandfather to Shannon (Chris), Heather, Kathleen, Kaitlyn (Adam), Christopher, and Carly; and a great-grandfather to Roselie, Noah, and William.
Joe was born on June 3, 1923, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He spent 30 years in the Royal Canadian Air Force. As a young man, he played baseball and hockey. His love of the ice carried through to his later years when he skated at West Edmonton Mall. Joe was an avid golfer and a true family man. He was a kind, thoughtful, humble man who knew hard times and always made the best with what he had. He will be remembered by his family for his quiet, calm presence and his ready smile.
A Private Funeral Mass was held at Good Shepherd Catholic Church on June 9, 2022, at 1:30 p.m. Joe will be laid to Rest at the Holy Cross Cemetery at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Joe’s memory to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, PO Box 11532 Station Main, Edmonton, AB, T5J 3K7.
