ROCKWOOD, E. Joseph “Joe” of Bobcaygeon

Posted by on March 11, 2015

ROCKWOOD, E. Joseph “Joe”
Passed away after a lengthy illness on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at Pinecrest Nursing Home, Bobcaygeon, ON, in his 75th year.
Joe was the beloved husband of the late Ruby Patricia (Bennett) and loving father of Jim and Mike (Lianne Spearman). Youngest brother of ten siblings, all of whom are pre-deceased.
Joe was born in St. John’s, NL. He moved to Ontario in the sixties to pursue and later marry Patricia (also originally from Newfoundland) in 1965. Over the years, Joe resided in Toronto and Thornhill, then moved to Bancroft in his retirement years. He spent his last year and a half at Pinecrest Nursing Home, Bobcaygeon, where he made new friends.
He will be fondly remembered by family members and all who knew him as being kind-hearted and soft-spoken. A man with a playful sense of humour who could always “spin a good yarn”. His many interests over his lifetime included chess, baseball, boxing, playing “blues harp”, bow hunting, fly fishing, and history. Despite many years of working night shifts, Joe managed to spend as much time as he could with Pat and the boys to share his many interests and give the best of himself.
A proud Newfoundlander who never returned “down home”, but who always kept the traditions and his memories of Newfoundland close to his heart.
Thanks for the support of the Rockwood and Bennett families, in particular, Lorraine Michael (NL), Sandra and Doug Sorensen (Mexico), Paul and Mary Hall (ON). Much gratitude to Bob and Margaret Spearman (ON) for their generous efforts and support while Joe resided at Pinecrest and since he passed. Heartfelt thanks from Mike and Lianne to all the wonderful staff at Pinecrest Nursing Home and Dr. Stephen Oldridge for their excellent care.
Cremation entrusted to COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL HOME. If desired, condolences to the family, or donations to the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice, may be made at www.CommunityAlternative.ca or by calling 705-742-1875.
