Joe was born and raised on a farm around Gros Ventre, Alberta. He worked at the Dominion Glass Factory in Redcliff for over 40 years.

He was handy in repairing appliances, making jewellery boxes, dog houses, macraméing clothes hangers by the dozens and vacationing, first in a tent, then trailer and later, travelling the world. He especially enjoyed listening to Tiger’s Hockey on his radio and he never missed his children’s or grandchildren’s events, sporting or otherwise.

The family wish to express thanks to Brandi from Home Care and the staff at Wellington Retirement Residence.

A private family graveside funeral service will take place at Hillside Cemetery with Pastor Lance Duncalfe Officiating.

RICK DAWSON

Last Wednesday, a gathering of family and friends united at Seven Persons Hall to bid farewell to Rick Dawson. Many wonderful memories of him were shared through tributes and photos but perhaps the one thing that will be missed most about Rick, is his smile.

“If there ever comes a day
when we can’t be together,
keep me in your heart,
I’ll stay there forever.”

His Life Lived…
His Life Cherished…
His Life Honoured.
