Joseph (“Geno”) Patrick Bernie
Joseph died suddenly and tragically on October 10, 2015, on Salt Spring Island, B.C., at the age of 45 years.
Joe is mourned by his four brothers; Don (Kim), John (Megan), Richard, and Michael (Doris), his sister, Barbara (Steven), and his mother, Phyllis. He is also survived by his nieces; Katie, Shayla, Erin, Heather, and Ariel, and nephews Clayton, Tyler, Patrick, and Martin.
Joe was an accomplished artist whose talent was obvious to those who saw it. He was uncompromising in his desire to live his life in his own way.
A private family memorial for Joe will be held at a later date.

Though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon”.
