Joseph Ambrose Meyer

September 13, 1921 - July 29, 2014


“Joe” passed away at Mariposa Gardens on Tuesday 29th with his wife Doris, son Larry and daughter-in-law, Maureen by his side.

He was predeceased by his youngest son, Denny in  September, 1973.

He was 1 of 8 siblings and was predeceased by all of them.

Joe will be fondly remembered by his family, including wife Doris of 69 years; sons Larry (Maureen) and Allen  (Corrine) (granddaughter Lindsay) ( grandson Danny). Also survived by 2 sisters-in-law, numerous nieces and nephews and a couple of dear old friends in Finley & Bobby.

“Joey” as he was called by his brothers & sisters were all born in Richdale, Alberta.

He worked at farming until 1947 when he and some of  his brothers & sisters family’s went to Hedley BC to work at the gold stamp mill. After the mine & mill shut down in 1955 he worked away from home at various mines in Copper Mountain, Port McNeil and Zeballoes.

After 1967 he went into the construction business as a crane operator building the Peace River Dam and later building new mines in the Highland Valley area near Ashcroft BC. In the late 1970's & 1980's he used his handyman skills around Hedley & Keremeos. Joe and Doris resided in Hedley for 63 years and in 2010 moved to Mariposa Gardens in Osoyoos BC.

Enjoy the rest of your journey Dad.
