Joseph “Joe” Stewart
November 13, 1958 - December 27, 2020
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Joseph “Joe” Stewart Berry of East Coulee, Alberta. Joe was kind to everyone, social, structured and disciplined. He was honest, unable to sugar coating anything, and strong to his opinions but never rude. He loved spending time with his girls, pets and particularly his grandson; going on adventures including road trips, camping, taking in hockey games and hikes or even adventures on the screen. He loved reading books and watching birds at his feeders and baths which were always filled. He loved telling stories of his military times, reminiscing about the friends he’d made and places he’d been. He enjoyed a big glass of cold milk or a cold beer but always had a coffee in hand. He spent much of his time in Wayne, Alberta where he worked the last four years at the Last Chance Saloon and absolutely loved the place, his work and the people. He will be greatly missed and always remembered. He leaves behind brother Jeff Berry and his wife Vanessa (Nathan and Annie), his daughters, Sophie De Silva and Sadie Berry, grandson, Lucian Stewart De Silva and his beloved dog Jacky who was by his side till the very end. Joe was predeceased by his parents Gordon Leroy Berry and Phyllis Stewart (MacBeath) as well as his dog GrizzBear and cats To and Kiwi who he missed very much. Due to Covid restrictions, also at Joe’s request, no funeral will be held and his ashes will be spread by immediate family and friends.
In honour of his memory, donations can be made to the Drumheller Humane Society.
