Joee Fellner, 38, passed unexpectedly in Mill Bay, BC. He was born, in Edmonton, Alberta. He leaves behind good friends, family & beloved children in London, ON, Milestone, SK & Victoria / Salt Spring Island, BC.
Joee was extremely talented at anything he put his mind to. He worked as a grain elevator operator for many years, did roofing & handyman jobs, worked in the serving industry for over 20 years, and enjoyed various sales jobs through the years, where he excelled. Joee had an infectious personality that affected anyone who met him. Joee liked to make an impression, whether it be by looking his best, rolling up his sleeves to show off his tattoos, playing loud music and driving fast cars or driving cars fast. Joee always had music playing, whether it be from the ear buds around his neck, resident stereo system or car stereo. Joee loved feeling alive and he was good at loving the people around him, unconditionally.
Joee will be greatly missed by his close friends and family on Salt Spring Island and in Victoria, BC. He spent the first 6 months of 2019 on Salt Spring, where he made many good friends and became part of their families. With a quick smile, an easy laugh & large hazel eyes, Joee was a charismatic & charming character. He leaves behind the many supporters & friends in the recovery community of Salt Spring, Monty, Darren & Addie Potvin – Wesley, David Phillips, Deb Osmanich & Letitia Lane of Salt Spring Island.
The last 6 months of Joee’s life, he spent with Claire Sarginson & her son Ari Sigvaldason of Victoria, BC. Joee was excited about this new chapter of his life, worked hard, and enjoyed a quiet many months before his passing. Joee will be remembered for his love of animals & children and being a highly intelligent, fun, generous, loyal, enthusiastic, determined, quick-witted, inspiring & loving man.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2pm February 22, at All Saints by-the-Sea, Anglican Parish on Salt Spring Island – Priest Gyllian Davies will officiate.
