Patrick Joseph, a resident of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on September 15, 2023, at the age of 92. Born on April 16, 1931, in Dublin, Ireland, Pat migrated to Canada in 1953 and established himself as a skilled electrician. He made his home in Calgary in 1959, where he met and married his beloved wife Julia Agnes (nee Irvine). Pat found great joy in exploring the Rocky Mountains, taking leisurely walks, and driving through the scenic countryside around Calgary. Most of all, he cherished the company of his son Kevin, daughter-in-law Mandy, and his grandchildren, engaging in lively conversations with a warm smile on his face.

Throughout his life, Pat joined the IBEW and served as a dedicated member for an impressive 70 years. He was also involved in the Knights of Columbus and actively contributed to various volunteer initiatives at St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church. Pat took pleasure in returning to Ireland and enjoying winters in Yuma, AZ. An avid observer of wildlife, nature, and people in Calgary’s shopping malls, he found simple delights in the world around him.

Pat was preceded in death by his wife Julia, his son Brian, his second wife Pauline, and his spouse Agnes. He is survived by his sister Rosaleen, his brother Tom, his children Margaret, Kevin, and Tom, his grandchildren JT, David, Alex, Delaney, Brendan, Kiera, Emily, Julia, and Justin, as well as his great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Bensler, Rosie, Dr. Britt Simmons, and the compassionate team at Unit 73, Rockyview General Hospital, especially Marina, Angel, Sarahbeth, Daniel, Jimmy, Lori, Keri, Jolin, Emma, and the palliative care team for their exceptional care.
