KINGCOTT, Albert Josiah (Joe)
August 16th 1937 – February 9th, 2013
It is with great sadness we announce that our beloved Joe passed away peacefully on February 9th, 2013 with his beloved wife Sheila by his side.
Joe was predeceased by his daughter, Debra and brother George. He is survived by his sons; George (Angela), Edward (Darlene), and daughter Teresa (Dan), sisters Mary and Olive (Al), brothers Bill and Sid, and many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Born to a farming family in Hanna, Alberta, where many relatives remain, Joe moved to Victoria when he was 12 years old. Joe’s career as a millwright started at Victoria Plywood and took him to Duncan, 100 Mile House, and Port Alice before he and Sheila retired in Ladysmith.
Joe was a man of many talents and particularly enjoyed woodworking in his early retirement years; however his passion was his fruit and vegetable farm. Some may say that the only reason he survived several battles with cancer was because he had work to do on his farm.
Joe was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, above all else, he will be remembered for his kind heart and generosity to all those around him.
At Joe’s request there will be no funeral service. Flowers gratefully declined. In memory of Joe those so desiring may make donations to the charity of their choice.
