November 7, 1954 – June 8, 2019
It’s with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Joe Courtoreille on June 8th, 2019.
For over 25 years during good weather Except during hunting season) he could be seen leaving his concrete mark in and around Merritt. He was a hard-workin, generous and loyal man. He loved anything to do with the outdoors whether it was chopping his wood supply for the winter, hunting, fishing, golfing or watching his garden grow, the outdoors was Joe’s idea of heaven on earth.
Above all else Joe loved his family. He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years Kathleen Courtoreille, daughters Sabrina Courtoreille, Nicole (Bill) Mikkelsen, Katie Suvanto, and (loved like a daughter) Carrie Szabo, sons Paul(Shawna), Kristopher (Danielle) and Simon (Vanessa) His 15 beautiful grandchildren, six brothers and sisters, and many nieces and nephews and beloved friends.
Joseph was predeceased by his parents Angelina and Joseph Courtoreille, his son Adam, and siblings Linda Dumont, Raymond, Gary and Barbara.
To the world you were husband, Dad, Grandfather: to us you were the world.
