We Remember

JOSEPH, Walter Adrian

It is with deep sadness that the family of Walter Joseph announce his passing on January 11, 2021 at the age of 71. He leaves behind his siblings Emma Derrick of Smithers, BC, Helen Joseph of Smithers, BC, Annie Joseph of Smithers, BC, Nick (Pauline) Joseph of Hagwilget, BC, Jules (Joan) Joseph of Smithers, BC, Roberta (Bruce) Brown of Prince Rupert, BC, David Joseph of Smithers, BC, and Jackie Joseph (Scott Burns) of Prince Rupert, BC; as well as his 29 nieces and nephews and many dear friends. Those who went before him include three of his brothers, Patrick Pierre, John Joseph, and Marty Joseph, and two of his sisters, Nora brown and Patsy Joseph.

Walter loved it when his family would gather, and he loved holding the babies; Christmas dinners were always a special time. His family was precious to him.

A true sports fan, Walter loved hockey and baseball; he cheered for the Montreal Canadians, Vancouver Canucks, and the Toronto Blue Jays. A special highlight was seeing three Blue Jays games while in Seattle, WA. Walter lived with his sister Helen on Slack Rd,  and Railway Ave where the train was right there. He loved to count how many cars went by. Living at the trailer in Mnt Vw he would take pictures of the Hudson bay mnt at sunset, also he could tell us the weather just by looking at the moon and the northern lights.

He will be dearly missed by everyone.


A private graveside service will take place in Witset, BC to honour Walter. For those who are unable to attend we ask that you each honour Walter in your own way. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos, or share a memory please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences”.
