Finn, JosephSaturday, 03 Sep 2011
With great sadness, the family and friends of Joe announce his passing on September 3rd. His final evening was spent with family and friends in true Irish style.
Survived by his wife, Rita; the couple was just short of their 60th anniversary. Joe will be missed by his daughters Jody and Debbi; granddaughters Christy and Quinn; great-granddaughter Elise. Also by his two younger brothers, Glen and Wink and their families and numerous relatives and friends in both the Finn and Pollock families. Joe was predeceased by his sister Colleen Jensen.
Joes eighty two years were full of jokes, travels and family. He had a long and accomplished career with the Provincial Government in both BC and the Yukon. Many memories were made hunting, fishing and boating in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and BC. Joe was a life member of the Elks and was designated a Master Mason in Victoria in 1984. A highlight of his Shriners involvement was acting as Secretary from 1994 to 2008.
Thank you to Berwick on the Park and Dr. Stefanyk for the past three years of kindness and support.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday Sept 9, commencing at 1 pm at Schoenings Funeral Services. In lieu of flowers, donations are accepted at Gizeh Shrine Center, Shriners Childrens Hospital Fund, 3550 Wayburne Drive, Burnaby, BC V5G 3K9; 1-800-661-5437.
