Condolences to the family of Joseph (Joe) Thomas Cardamone



Joseph Thomas

July 25, 1932 - July 31, 2017

The family is saddened to announce the passing of Joe Cardamone on July 31, 2017. Joe was born in Haynes, Alberta and moved to Drumheller at a young age where he attended his schooling and proceeded to become a prominent businessman in this area. Growing a family of 5 children, he was a most caring father and grandfather, always willing to support and advise. He coached little league baseball as well as enjoyed hunting and fishing with the boys. Memories of Joe’s good times in life were related to holidays and functions with family, or with his golf buddies on trips and some K40 bonspieling. He began his business career with the inception of Joe’s Delivery Service in 1952. Moving on to the oil industry in 1959 the Texaco Bulk Station was operated under Uni-Tex Oil Ltd for 30 years. His love of cars led him to a partnership in Western-Chev-Olds, which became a Cadillac dealership as well during his time as manager. After the sale of Western-Chev, Joe ventured into the hotel industry. With a group of partners they embarked on the construction and operation of The Drumheller Inn (now Quality Inn) which was operated as a partnership from 1983-2006. The last 15 years of this business was personally managed by Joe and it became his passion to make it successful. Upon the sale of the hotel in 2006 he was able to retire and have some years of unburdened retirement and to deal with his ongoing health issues. He was a loyal member of the Drumheller Kinsmen Club joining in 1955 and holding offices as Secretary, President, District Deputy Governor, and was a Life Member. Also during all his busy and productive years he served on St. Anthony’s School board for 9 years, part of that as Chairman, as well as some years involved with Drumheller & District Chamber of Commerce, and St. Anthony’s Knights of Columbus Lodge. Joe was predeceased by his parents, Augostino & Francesca Cardamone, his brother Tony Cardamone, his sisters Kay Blasetti, Angela Gieck and all of their spouses.
