What a shame. I admired his strength and vigor and gusto.

Remember the DF trips, and that big axe of his?

I'm glad I was able to share some camps with him. I'll miss him.

It says "double post" but I don't see the original post - are there more details somewhere?

His obituary is posted here https://www.sudbury.com/obituaries/beyn ... 1QXu0JcGcI

Joe was a friend and a mentor to many. Strong and active and incredibly skilled. A kind and generous man.
He was a great canoeist too, completing trans-watershed journeys down the Thelon and Kazan while in his 60's.

I will miss him.

Daniel.

I was shocked to read his obituary today.
Joe was a great guy. I always enjoyed our canoeing together.


“I do believe it’s time for another adventure” said Joe.

RIP

I did not know the man, but his username here does ring a bell for me.

Since I did not know him, I can offer no comment on the life he lived or the legacy he left. He had grandchildren, which I will never have. And I think most of all, he died surrounded by family. He had 10 siblings. My father hails from such a family. My god, he was lucky.

May he rest in peace.

Met him once when stopping over in Sudbury - he walked over and introduced himself. I always appreciated his posts on CCR...

A good man with an adventurous soul. Saddened by this loss.

Sad to hear this.
I remember his posts over many, many years here.

Very sad to hear when we lose such a vibrant voice for the outdoors!
