Obituary for Joseph Richard Child

July 22, 1942 - February 5, 2019
It is with deep love and great sadness that the family of Joseph Child announce his death. Joe passed away peacefully surrounded by his family and will be lovingly remembered by his wife Kathleen Kelly, his sister Audrey Child, his children Mark and Jenny, their families, his nephews Tim and Steven, and Joe's community of friends at L'Arche Daybreak. Born in Henry, IL, Joe was a retired wood worker, teacher, funeral director, and former leader of the Woodery at L'Arche Daybreak. Joe's love of the outdoors, paddling, and camping brought together many groups of people through trips to Georgian Bay and West Virginia. Visitation will take place on Thursday, February 7th from 4-7pm at the chapel at L'Arche Daybreak. The funeral service will be at St. Mary's Anglican Church at 10am Friday, February 8th. In lieu of flowers, donations to L'Arche Daybreak would be appreciated.
