So sorry for your loss. Your memories will be a help during this dark time.

Mr. Joe Suk. You were a great father, husband, friend and neighbour. Also such a hardworking man. This man was also a crack shot at the trap-range back in the day and boy don't even get me started on the fact that Joe could cut grass like nobodies business. Joe, you will be missed by many. By Virginia, Linda, Janet and yes even your coffee club men. Joe, you outlasted all of your original John St. neighbours but now you can say hello to them once more. Rest in eternal peace Joe , you've done well on this earth and anyone that had the chance to meet you will remember you fondly. Go with God now Mr. Suk. Love you bud.

So sorry for your loss. Joe and our Dave spent a lot of time together with the Blades and much alike both adored their families and had lots of friends. My guess is they are somewhere together talking hockey and giving each other a hard time. RIP Joe...until we meet again

Linda and Virginia, We are so sorry to hear about Joe's passing. Our sincere condolences to both of you. Lisa and Bernie Howard
