Joe Fnukal passed away at home on Saturday July 4, 2020.  He was predeceased by his first wife and the mother of his children; Joyce (Arthurton) Fnukal in 1991 and by his wife Sharon Fnukal in 2019.

Joe is survived by his children Christine & Ray Ford, Paula Warren and Angela Fnukal.  He is also survived by 7 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.  His family joined him just last month as he celebrated his 90th birthday.  He was predeceased by his sister Lillian Henderson and his brother Anthony Fnukal.

Joe was a milkman for many years back in the day when milk was delivered right to your house.  Later on, he took a job with the Township and worked part time at Evergreen Cemetery.

Joe’s family will remember him privately at a graveside service in Evergreen Cemetery where he will be laid to rest beside Joyce.

Friends wishing to remember Joe with a memorial donation are asked to consider Diabetes Canada or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Sincere condolences. 🙏

Angela, and the Fnukal so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God Bless

Please accept my sincere condolences. I fondly remember Joe when he was our milkman. He would let himself in and place the milk in the fridge if no one was home. He would also stop if he saw us hoeing beans and we would get ice cream delivery to the field!!! Needless to say he was one our favourite people.

been awhile since I talked to u but never forgot u. R.I.P. JOE

Joe and Sharon were instrumental in taking care of our children for many years and they accepted them like their own. We will be forever grateful for their kind and caring nurturing of our kids. They will always hold a special place in our hearts. Especially for Lydia - who she referred to Joe as" Papa Joe" - and he fondly called her his, " Little Bugsy". Rest in Peace Joe Beth, Rick, Evan, Colleen and Lydia Hall

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Chris. My deepest condolences to you all.

My condolences to the Funukal families, I remember Joe as our milk man when living on Lumley St. So sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear of Joe's passing. He was always a good friend willing to tell a good story every time we visited. A ten minute stop would always end up in being at least an hour. Please accept my heartfelt condolences in your time of sorrow.

To Joe's family, Sharon looked after my Grandchildren and Joe often came and took them places. The kids loved him and he was always so kind to them. May you all find comfort in your memories. Praying for comfort and peace during this time.

I am so sorry to hear of your dad passing, Paula, Angela and Chris...and to all your families my deepest condolences. Judy-Wilson-Beresford

I have very fond memories of Joe the milkman when I was very young and he brought milk to our farm. Was always entranced by his coin holder attached to his belt—definitely a thing of the past!! I also remember he was always whistling and and in a good happy mood. Need more of his kind for sure! Condolences to your family.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Over the years we got to be pretty good friends and I certainly will miss him. We had a good talk on the phone a few days ago and got caught up on everything. Keeping you in my prayers .

Chris, Angela and Paula sorry to hear about the passing of your father. He always said he was going to live to be 100. He did a good job, 90 is an accomplishment. RIP Joe
