I was sad to hear from my mother about Joe and Catherine. While I was in high school and away at University, the Whorms were our neighbours on Lynndale Road and I remember them fondly. When I moved out to my first home, Joe gave my husband and me some garden tools that he had seconds of. He had to teach me how to use them which I still chuckle about; we still have them and can now use them quite capably! Joe and Catherine were great neighbours to my mom (Carol Croucher) and Bob and they are fondly remembered.
Beautiful,,gentle wise man.
You will be remembered and will be missed.
My sincere sympathy to your two beautiful daughters and family Joe. Emmanuel House was blessed because you were with us a short time.
May God continue to be with your family during this time of sorrow in losing both parents at the same time.
My prayers are with you all, Sister Elaine
Many of my childhood memories include Joe, he worked at the Royal York Hotel with my mom and her husband Nelson and rented a room from them in the 1950’s so he was included in many of our family gatherings. Joe was fun, wise, quiet, kind, and a wonderful husband to Cathy and a good father to you girls. My mom has been friends with Joe and Cathy for so many years that she considered them both extended family and they shared many special occasions together. They will both be missed and we will continue to share the memories and photos of so many happy times! Our thoughts and prayers are with you in these difficult days!
So sorry to hear about Joe’s passing. Joe was an active member of the Ancaster Lawn Bowling Club where we knew him. We always enjoyed bowling with him and it was a pleasure to come up against him in the more competitive tournaments as we knew we would have a good game and some pleasant conversation at the same time. He will be sincerely missed. With our sympathies Lock, Nancy, and Dorothy
