MITCHELL: Joseph Patrick “Joe” of Plattsville, formerly of Lucan

The man, the myth, the legend, to us he is a husband, Dad, brother, uncle, and friend. Our daughters Lauren, Rebecca, Katrina, and Aliena will make sure he stays with us. In keeping with Joe’s style, he would like a traditional Irish Wake, with laughter and great stories. Joe’s favourite colour was plaid, so in tribute to him, we ask you wear your jeans, and anything plaid. We ask in lieu of flowers and donations, that you take your family out to dinner and tell them how much you love them. To us that would be the greatest gift, as our girls are to us. You are my everything Joe. I love you, Susan.

A celebration of life will be held at the Wilmot Rod & Gun Club, 2607 Bleams Road, New Hamburg on Thursday, November 21st from 3 – 9 PM, with words of remembrance at 6:30 PM. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to Haskett Funeral Home, Lucan.

Susan and Girls
We are so sorry to hear about this. I know Joe was in a lot of pain and you were unable to live the busy life you were used to. Joe was always a lot of laughs and I very much enjoyed the drives we had back to Kirby’s. Hugs to you all. Brenda Alderson and Ron Kerr.

Joe was a great man and a good friend. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I can still remember the day he started at Altruck. I took him under my wing and showed him around. Ever since then the two of us connected. I felt pain as to what he had to go thru with the sickness, but now he is with the angel’s and no more pain. He will always be here in your heart, and everyone’s memory. My condolences to the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Joe was a big part of wonderful childhood memories of my family visiting the Mitchell farm. We learned and laughed a lot during those visits. He will be missed. Sending love to everyone who’s life he touched.

Lauren, Rebecca and Katrina. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts. i can’t imagine the pain of your loss.

Condolence from Guy on November 19th, 2019 11:22 AM

We will miss “JFM” here at Alpine. He was always a joy to be around with his wit and satire. We will keep his spirit alive with his stories and jokes. Joe made our lives better and I’m sure many other people he touched feel the same way. God Bless you Susan as I know how much you completed Joe.

Condolence from Robin Ross on November 19th, 2019 12:10 PM

I remember Joe
In days gone by we drank each other’s health, and laughed as though
our days would never end. Sure, who’s to know
Though I am far away and that was long ago
I still remember Joe

On his appointed day I’ll wear the plaid and have a small swally of “the creature”

Condolences to the family

I will always remember the kindness and the respect he had for others , and the respect many people had for him ,and the love he had for his family. May the love and memories of Joe and the love of family surround you and give you strength .

Condolence from Brian Craig on November 19th, 2019 2:42 PM

It is with great sadness that we hear of Joe’s passing. I’m sure many people aren’t aware of the wonderful deeds done quietly by Joe and Susan along the way. I only got to know Joe working with him for a few years but I am proud to count him as a friend. He was the most knowledgeable truck salesman that I have ever known and was always willing to help anyone. Condolences to Susan and the family.

Condolence from Bob & Connie Walters on November 20th, 2019 6:48 PM

Just heard about Joe, he will be sadly missed. Hopefully he is on the great pasture enjoying life on the farm again and having no more pain.

Condolence from Barry Peters on November 21st, 2019 8:26 AM

One of Joe’s quotes that I often think of is “if you aren’t living on the edge you are taking up too much room”. Not sure if it was his own or if he “borrowed” it but he did live it. He kept us sharp, taught us allot, made us better and wont be forgotten. Deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to Susan, his Family and his Friends. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Leasa and Barry.

Condolence from Esther Marcus on November 21st, 2019 8:34 AM

My family and I are so sorry for your loss. May you draw strength from being together to remember and celebrate Joe’s life.

Condolence from MK on November 21st, 2019 12:05 PM

My condolences to Joe’s family
What a genuine good guy! As a truck salesman Joe often visited my workplace. Such a good nature and impish grin with a twinkle in his eye implying another story or joke was forth coming even throughout his ongoing battle & treatments. Joe remains an inspiration warming so many hearts!
They cut me down and I leap up high.
I am the life that’ll never die.
I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me.
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

Condolence from Rick Freeman on November 21st, 2019 12:52 PM

I am so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are sent to Sue and the family. Keep on Truckin

Condolence from Pat and Aneta Walzak on November 21st, 2019 1:07 PM

Celebrating the life of a good man and mourning his passing. He was taken too soon.

Condolence from Courtney Proulx on November 21st, 2019 3:55 PM

I am so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. In the little time that I knew him, it was evident that he had immense courage, enduring strength and an undying love for his wonderful family. My love and prayers are with you, Sue, and your girls during this very difficult time. It was a privilege to meet him and all of you and I wish you all the very best. God bless, xo.

Condolence from Cara on November 21st, 2019 4:16 PM

Condolence from Michele Anstett on December 3rd, 2019 10:33 AM

Susan and Girls
You know how much I loved my Joe (And not in a weird way in the words of Joe) I am so glad I got to sit and hold his hand in the weeks before he left this world. I am sorry I was away the day of his gathering.
What can I say he was my best salesman ever. He taught me so much and was so knowledgeable. He treated his customers so well they always came back and wanted to deal with him. Boy did he know his trucks! I still tell all my new salesman to be like my Joe was when dealing with customers!
He was a no bull shit, no filter kind of guy and that was what I loved about him. He lived his life right, played hard, loved harder. Susan the way you advocated for him, please know he talked about that with me and he couldn’t be more thankful for you. You were his pit bull! I know he is up sharing a beer or two or lets be honest more, with my John. They are looking down at us and enjoying talking about us. Text me anytime Susan..
Love Michele Anstett
