Born March 24, 1934.  Joe passed away suddenly on December 9, 2013 at home.  He was predeceased by his father Joe Sr., brother George, sister Isabelle and son Neil.  Joe is survived by his loving wife Shirley, his mother Jesse Kuttai, daughters Debbie (Bob Menard), Brenda Kuttai, son Roger Kuttai(Reena).  He is also survived by his grandchildren Jacqueline (Dale), Scott (Michelle), Lisa, Jennifer and Joe, as well as his great grandchildren Amber, Maxtin, Jadyn and Pandora.  Dad loved the outdoors.  Be it fishing, riding around the property on his gator, planting his garden and visiting with friends.  He will be missed by many.  A memorial service will be on Monday December 16, 2013 at 11am in St. Edward’s Catholic Church 2085 Maple Bay Road, Duncan, B.C.

It is with sadness I heard about Joe’s passing. Please accept our thoughts and prayers for your family as you go through this tough time at Christmas. May the peace of Jesus be with you all. I only just met Joe at his accountants office and discovered we were related. He gave me one of the warmest , biggest bear hugs ever! I will never forget meeting him. Shirley I hope we will be able to keep in touch and if there is anything we can do for you please let us know. I guess our bbq with Joe will have to wait for heaven…We will not be able to attend the service but will be thinking of you. Take care. Love Liz and family
