Dear godson of Tom Ense and Lorraine Migwans. Lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Joe’s walk on this earth was of a kind and gentle nature. He was a man of his word and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Joe was a pet lover, a recycler and an athlete. He loved the game of basketball. Joe faced his fears. He didn’t care about material things. He cared about how everyone lived and wanted to put a smile on everyone’s face. Joe always saw the humour in everything and loved to tease. Family and friends gathered at the M’Chigeeng Community Complex for visitation which started on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 to the Funeral Service which was on Friday, July 13, 2018 at 3:30 pm. Burial at M’Chigeeng Cemetery. Island Funeral Home.
