Joe entered the world the same night as Neil
Armstrong walked on the moon (July 21, 1969)
giving him a historical reference point that few
people enjoyed. He graduated from the Technical
University of Nova Scotia (TUNS) in 1995 with a
Bachelor of Computer Science and worked for
several companies over the last 16 years in
Ontario including Nortel and Entrust. He was
presently employed with The Communications
Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) in Ottawa as
a systems architect.
Computers were his passion and career but Joe had
many varied interests including movies, science
fiction, and sports like hockey and golf but he
especially liked to fish as a boy and carried
that love with him all his life. He was an avid
supporter and season ticket holder of the Ottawa
Senators and his house was littered with
Senator's jerseys and souvenirs.
Joe never forgot where he came from and he wore
so many Cape Breton shirts, hats, and jackets,
that his co-workers used to refer to him as the
Billboard from Cape Breton. He came home every
year at Christmas and vacation to visit his
parents.
He was a caring and gentle soul who was generous
to his family and friends. He will be greatly
missed by all who were fortunate to know him.
There will be no visitation, cremation has taken
place and a funeral mass of celebration will take
place on Tuesday, May 3, 2011 at 10 a.m. in the
Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Ave.,
