Joseph BONIN

BONIN Joseph "Joe" Celestin Bonin went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, April 10, 2007 the day of his and Marie's 64th Wedding Anniversary. They were married in Red Deer, Alberta on Saturday, April 10, 1943. Joe was born in St. Amelie, Manitoba on Tuesday, March 21, 1916. Joe was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Anysie, six brothers and five sisters. Joe is survived by his loving wife, Marie, one daughter, Elaine, four sons: Bob (Donna), Gordie, David, and Don, nine grandchildren and  five great grandchildren. Joe was a friend and mentor to many, from his army days to his care giving at Holy Family Hospital, Prince Albert, Sask. and at the Red Deer General Hospital from 1953 until retirement in 1978. There was even a few good years on the Canadian Pacific Railroad and  coaching minor hockey and baseball to so many of the Red Deer kids he knew and loved. Joe even had a few years in the Forestry Service after he retired, thrown in for good measure. A full life for sure, but still too short for his family and many friends. Rest In Peace Joe, you are SO loved, and will be dearly missed. A Celebration of Joe's life will be held at Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium, 6287-67A Street, Red Deer, AB at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, April 16, 2007, with Pastor James Schuelke officiating. For those who wish to pay their final respects may do so from 12 noon to 12:50 p.m. prior to the Funeral Service.
