Joseph Victor McKay

May 25, 1932 – March 17, 2015

Joe passed away peacefully at home after a long battle with COPD.

Joe will be missed by his wife Donna and children Dan (Alanna), Beth (Bob), Susan (Craig), 5 grandchildren- Logan McKay, Michael and Richard Skeet, Nicholas and Trevor La Fountain. Joe is also survived by his aunt Myrtle McKay, sister Jeanne Hawthorne and family, brother Bill McKay and family, also many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Joe was born in Comox and lived in Union Bay all his life except for times spent in logging camps all up and down the west coast. Joe loved the outdoors and spent many years fishing, hunting and camping with family and friends.

The last few years were spent working with his “grow show” (tomatoes) and his green house, and playing cards with anyone he could catch.

Many thanks to Dr. Woldnik and Dr. Dawadi for their care over the last four years.

A celebration of Joe’s life will be held on March 29 at 2:00pm in the Union Bay Community Hall.

Joe was also an avid ball player and later a dedicated fan, so in lieu of flowers donations could be made to the Union Bay Community Hall: P.O. Box 335, Union Bay, B.C V0R 3B0 for upkeep of the ball field.
