Obituary

Joseph Gagnon passed away peacefully September 3, 2012 aged 85 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Shirley, son Larry and daughters Rachelle, Andrea and Jocelyn. He also leaves four grandchildren, Stephen, Jennifer, Lauren and Breann, daughter-in-law Andrea, son-in-law Harvey and brothers Theo and Greg. Joe was born in 1927 in St. Paul, Alberta, but grew up in Edmonton and continued to live there for the remainder of his life. Joe retired from car sales and leasing management in 1993 and continued to enjoy his two passions of golf and lake cottage life until his health began to fail in 2007. Joe was what one would call a great character. His sense of humour was renowned and he was often the life and soul of the party. He was an instigator of the infamous Gagnon Golf Tournament, which brought together the very large Gagnon family and close friends in a mutual love of golf and partying. A self-taught builder Joe managed to contruct a wonderful lake-front cottage out of the wilderness that was Long Lake in the late 1950s and later another cabin at Alberta Beach in the early 1980s. Many a boisterous family and friends gathering was had at both cabins. Joe rarely had a bad word to say about anyone because he mostly just wanted to laugh with everyone he met. His family and friends will continue to hear his laughter for many years to come. A Service to remember Joe will be held Friday, September 7, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011 114 Street, Edmonton. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta, 10531 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T5H 4K1, to assist others suffering from vascular dementia.

In Loving Memory of
Joseph "Joe" Gagnon
