It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved Joe, on December 24th, after a long courageous battle with an aggressive brain cancer at the age of 68.
He leaves to mourn his devoted wife of 44 years Cathy Hamer, amazing father to Christopher (Jennifer Anastasopoulos), and Ryan (Mélanie Gibeault). Loving “Bubba” to grandchildren to Logan, Savannah, Alessia and Matteo. Son of Zlata Katovcic, predeceased by father Cvetko Bedic. Brother of Anna Bedic.
A special mention goes to Sophia Hlongwani, who helped care for Joe and made him smile on a daily basis.
Joe was the ultimate family man, nothing gave him more pleasure than spending time with his family. He loved everything soccer, and was known as “The Gazelle” in his younger days because of his speed on the field.
He will be forever missed and never forgotten, in our hearts forever.
