His memory will be cherished by his grandchildren Nicole, Jason, Leah, Colin, Christopher and Jessica, and by his great grandchild Natalie.  He will also be fondly remembered by the family of Cathy Cousens (predeceased February 2021) who he lived with for 7 happy years.

He was a proud graduate of the University of New Brunswick in Mechanical Engineering and enjoyed a long and successful career specializing in ABS plastic pipe extrusion.

Joe loved and enjoyed his family and was very proud of all his children, grandchildren and great grandchild.  He was a long standing and very active member of the Masonic Waverly Lodge in Guelph.  He had a passion for photography and documenting the Whiteley/Brooks genealogy.  And for many, many years he was an avid homemade doughnut maker which was always enjoyed by family and friends.
