After a short battle with cancer Fr. Joseph Killoran has now gone to be with our Lord. He was born October 15, 1922 in Belledune, NB and passed away in Comox, BC on May 12, 2018.

Many sincere thanks to Dr. Potter-Cogan, Dr. Clark and the staff of St. Joseph’s Oceanview and the staff of the Comox Valley Hospital for their compassionate, loving care. A special thank you to all who visited him over the last few months which brought comfort to Fr. Joe.
