In loving memory ~
Joe was born in Fort William on March 9, 1953. One of four children born to Marie and Martin Maidment. He went to school in Thunder Bay.
He got married in 1974 to Janet and had 3 children, Michael, Candace and Jay. Then around 1984 he met Mary Anne and they had a son named James.
He also had a daughter before he was married and her name is Angela (Jason) Wittig. He drove trucks and when he moved to the island in 2000 he mainly worked in construction until he retired.
He was married to Fay. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and our brother Jim drove to the island and brought Joe back to his home in Okotoks Alberta so that he and his wife Carol Anne could care for him until he passed away August 4, 2022.
He is survived by his sister Denise Ryan and his 2 brothers Jim (Carol Anne) and Edward (Irene) and his children Angela, Michael, Candace, Jay and James. Grandchildren Madison, Jenna, Trystan, Brandon, Noah, Kaitlin, Lacy and Jackson as well as nieces and nephews and cousins.
The family would also like to show appreciation for Joe's care giver Stephen Clark. Joe and Stephen developed a special bond during the 2 weeks that Stephen was there.
Joe will be greatly missed by his family.
Funeral arrangements - a funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday, September 3 at 2:00 pm at St Francis Xavier Church 790 Kilmalu Road Mill Bay BC with internment of Joe's ashes to follow in the cemetery at Mill Bay. All are welcome.
