Well played Joe. Gotta love a left handed golfer !
Joe always called me "His kissing cousin". He was my favourite cousin, and I have many wonderful memories of him. He was so kind and gentle. I am so glad I was able to talk to him over the phone and as recently as just a few weeks ago. My deepest condolences to your daughters and their families. May he rest in peace.

Good bye Joe! You are going to be missed dearly by everyone. Who is going to make us laugh and keep us on our toes at our outings. We shall always cherish our memories. Sending my deepest sympathy to your family and Brenda.Patricia Bercier (widows group).
We are sad to read of Joe's passing. He was always a luminous member of St. Brigid's faith community. Joe's interest in church affairs was evident. He was ever vocal on controversial issues, and never hesitated to give his viewpoints which were thoughtful and helpful. Joe had a wonderful sense of humor and his wit was razor sharp. We will miss his smiling face. Rest in peace Joe. Love from Garth and Jenny Miller.
So saddened to read of your DEAR ONE'S passing. Joe brought a smile and warmth to my face and heart when he came into the room at ST. BRIGID'S. Simply by his presence, kindness and fun was felt and I still feel it now. May your heart heal soon and memories comfort you.
John O'Donohue words say it best: "You placed smiles like flowers
On the altar of the heart"
So thankful for having Joe in my life even for those short times.
May all be well.
Very saddened for the passing of our good neighbour Joe.
In Beaconhill Condos where he and where we live, Joe got involved with everyone here and was a member of the Board. Even though in his Autumn years, Joe was energetic and contributed to the running of the complex, administratively and very much socially. He always badgered me to go to the coffee mornings in the complex. I don't think I ever heard a negative thought spoken by him.
A gentle man and a gentleman.

Even though Joe was actually my second cousin, he was like an uncle to me, and my favourite, I might add. Always there was entertainment, comedy, frankness, and wisdom in Joe's vocabulary. There was genuine sincerity in Joe's advice and he was never short of it. Joe enjoyed debate and whether you agreed with him or not, he respected your side of the story. Darlene and I were blessed to be present during the many family gatherings of the Daniels in Calgary where Joe and Eleanor were the stars of the day.
To his four daughters and spouses, their children and grandchildren our sincere condolences.
Rest in Peace our dear Joe

My condolences to the family of Joe Daniels.
I met Joe when he came to Calgary as the area sales manager for Lincoln Electric, and I was a territory manager for Welders Supplies ( Praxair ) and we became good business friends.
I always admired Joe for his honesty and his desire to work for the best interest of our customers.
Joe impressed me mostly with his devotion to his family and his Catholic faith
I am so sadden to hear of your Fathers passing. Our dear "Uncle Joe". I have so many wonderful memories of visits to Toronto to see Murdo and Dorothy and in Thunder Bay with the family. When Uncle Joe entered the room, it was transformed. That twinkle in his eye, his jovial laugh and always a big bear hug. His dancing was always a great hit with his famous "Yoo Hoo". I loved his sense of humor, his stories and his gentleness. I never knew if his stories were factual or "Joe stories". It didn't matter as they were all funny. Reliving his childhood stories with his siblings always brought tears of laughter to all that surrounded him. My favorite all time story is the one he told his mother that he had an "oversized head". If he did anything improper or strange that was the reason. To this day, when I think about that story, I still laugh my head off. He will be dearly missed by all that knew him, but will always live on through his stories. Thinking of you all and sending love and bear hugs.

Your Dad was a very special man and will be missed by many. His sense of humor and concern for others are qualities that I will always cherish. Sending love and hugs your way. xo
Sending mountains of love and hugs. Our deepest condolences. Joes humour and kindness is what I remember most. I know the memories you hold will comfort you for many years.
Love from Nancy DaDalt and Bob Krysak.
Joe was a fine example to all of us at St. Brigid's Community as well as at St. Patrick's RC church. His dedication to his faith and to justice has been an inspiration to us as it has been to so many others. Joe lives in joy with his God and all of the faith filled people who have gone before him.

Thoughts and prayers to you Gail and your family at this time! Judy
