Sorry to hear Joe passed away.
Great memories of growing up with the

My sincere condolences to Joe’s family. I have a lot of fond memories going to school and playing minor hockey with Joey in Hensall. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Joe. I grew up with Joe in Hensall. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the families.
I grew up with Joe in Hensall. Although it has been 50 years since we were last together I still have very fond memories of our childhood friendship. My deepest condolences to the family.
Heartfelt condolences to Joe's family from a former classmate at Hensall Public School. Joe was a very quiet, serious little fellow . He once called me 'fickle' ...pretty astute, as I do try to see things from different perspectives :)
Joe was our Gr. 8 hero. We had badgered his Dad (our principal and Gr.8 teacher) for permission to celebrate our graduation with a classroom dance during 'Red Cross' meeting time. The answer was "NO". A discussion was held at the Reaburn home that evening (thank you Joe) . The decision was rescinded and we were allowed to bring our favourite records to school for a celebration. Gr. 8 graduation was different then. We were handed our report cards at the end of the day and walked out into our future ...no formal diploma ceremony, graduation dinner or photos published in the local paper...just simple classroom comraderie ...and we survived.
My cousin, Tammy Wharry Reaburn (Chris) once mentioned Joe's health struggles. I was so sorry to hear that he had passed .
Sending big hugs to his Mom Sheila and condolences to his entire family. If Joe's resemblance to his late father is any indication, I suspect he will live on in eternity in the faces, mannerisms and hearts of his offspring. <3 Wishing you all peace.
We are deeply saddened to hear that Joe has passed away. Bob and I remember so many wonderful moments spent with you both, especially those connected to marathoning in places like Boston, New York, Chicago and Medoc. Our hearts are breaking for you and your family.
Heartfelt condolences to all of you,
Anne Sorbie and Bob Hallett
Dear Cheri and family. I am so sorry to hear Joe has passed away. I have many fond memories of running with Joe at the Running Room, the pathways in Calgary as well as the Banff to Jasper Relay, He always had a big smile and knew how to have fun. Please accept my sincerest condolences, RIP Joe.
I'll never forget my first run with the Beaners led by Joe. I was new to Calgary, the running group and was very nervous. I recall being very chatty during that run wondering how i was going to fit in but Joe made it clear early in the run I was welcome. Despite his reassurance i still yacked throughout the run. Joe, without word or effort picked up the pace slightly which left me a little breathless, I stopped talking....then Joe slowed the pace and I chatted away again. This happened several times before i clued in and learned to relax and enjoy the view.
It was at that moment I knew I was welcome and learned the charms of Joe's leadership. I've since implemented that subtle strategy with new comers over the years. It was a privilege to run, travel and enjoy life's spoils with Joe and the rest of the Beaner's. I'll miss him dearly. RIP my friend.
Condolences to Cherie and the rest of Joe’s family and friends. I will forever remember his wit and wisdom that he shared with me as we logged many kms on the trails of Calgary. He was one of the “Beaners” that encouraged me and pushed me to complete my first marathon. Cheers to Joe and hugs to you all.
Deepest Sympathy to all of the Reaburn Family on the passing of your Loved One.
May the precious memories you have of Joe bring some comfort in the difficult days to come.
You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
