It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and tragic passing of our beloved Joe at the age of 48, as a result of a motor vehicle accident outside of Smithers, B.C.
Mourning his loss are his wife Catherine D'Andrea, son Michele, parents, Michele and Josephine D'Andrea, mother-in-law Cheryl (John) Healey, brother-in-law Andrew (Jasmine) Kmet; as well as many beloved aunts, uncles and cousins in Canada, the United States, and Italy. Lastly, he will be deeply missed by his loyal companions, Bella and Max.
Joe was predeceased by his grandparents, Giuseppe D'Andrea and Pasqualina Del Bouno-D'Andrea, Domenico Zarrillo and Maria Quagliata-Zarrillo.
Joe was a bright, curious, and outgoing child. He had a great sense of humour and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Always active, he loved sports, especially hockey, and played throughout from peewee, continuing to Ile-des-Chenes North Stars, then the Elks and was often called upon by neighbouring teams to fill in.
In Joe's early working years, he loved the food industry, where customers would ask and wait to be seated in his section only. Subsequently, he moved to the construction industry, proudly being a "Pipeliner" for SA Energy and O.J. Pipelines.
Joe was passionate about living, loving, caring and always giving. He found joy in travelling overseas as a young child and continued to do so with his wife and son. He developed a love for cooking, fishing and capturing his latest moments on video.
Joe was so very proud of his wife and his son, as well as his entire family and all his friends, near and far. He was a great conversationalist, staying connected with everyone right to the end. There is nothing he would not do for them; he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Mass of the Resurrection will be held on Friday, August 5, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 510 River Ave., Winnipeg, MB, with condolences and viewing at 10:00 a.m. Rev.

  • Cari cugini tutti, non so da dove iniziare e quali parole usare per farvi avere, anche con tanta distanza, il nostro affetto e supporto. Joe era un cugino speciale, affettuoso ed estroverso, non possiamo immaginare quanto mancherà a tutti noi, vi amava tanto e potete essere orgogliosi del suo cammino. Mi ha veramente spezzato il cuore pensare che non riceverò più i suoi meravigliosi video che ci facevano sentire tanto vicini. Un enorme abbraccio mando a Cathy e Mike ed ai miei tanto amati cugini Giuseppina e Michele. - Posted by: Paola Conti (Cugina ) on: Aug 01, 2022

  • Caro Joe, quando sei arrivato ad Aprilia la prima volta avevi 18 anni. Un ragazzone che veniva dal Canada con baffetti e capelli lunghi. Ti prendevamo tutti in giro per il tuo look e in pochi giorni ti facemmo tagliare baffi e capelli. Sei stato per me subito un fratello minore e decisi di prenderti per mano, ne abbiamo fatte tante, ci siamo divertiti, ti ho portato nei migliori locali della movida romana e a te sembrava tutto così magico. Sei stato accolto da tutti come uno di noi, la gente ti aveva soprannominato Joe il Canadese, passeggiavi per Aprilia tutti di salutavano con i tuoi modi gentili ed educati. La notizia della tua morte è stata come uno pugnalata al cuore, nessuno di noi voleva credere che ciò fosse accaduto. Rimarrai sempre nei nostri cuori. Un abbraccio caloroso a Cathy, Michelino, a mamma Josephine e Papà Michele vi siamo vicini in questo momento così doloroso. Ti ricorderemo sempre con grande affetto. Tuo fratello Marco, da tua sorella Feliciana e dalla tua nipotina Sara. Eri abituato a chiamarci così. Che il Signore ti accolda a braccia aperte in un mondo migliore. - Posted by: Marco Davi (Friends ) on: Jul 31, 2022

  • Josephine, I am so sorry to see this news. You were such a bright light for me and our group during our association. I wish I could do more than offer words that always feel inadequate.
