Joseph Pujol

August 5, 1947 - May 9, 2012



In Memoriam

Joseph Pujol – Born August 5th, 1947 in Sabadell, Spain passed away May 9th, 2012 at his long time, loved Nelson home.

With a Spanish heritage and a proud Spanish-Canadian heart, Joe tried to have a good passion for life and those he loved. With an incredible work ethic, he appreciated all opportunities afforded him for hard work and precious hobbies. His interests were diverse from horses and classic movies, to all things mechanical…..classic cars; nurturing trees of all species; music and his beautiful tenor saxophone; inventing and or designing any tool he needed but didn’t exist; his coin collection – he developed into ‘THE COIN CONNECTION’– A small business plan he worked with for several years, diversifying his collection and working with many people to develop theirs. He ‘studied’ the stock market, interested especially in developments and investments in natural renewable energy sources, such as solar. His latest passion was collecting and building functional miniature steam engines. All things intricate made him smile to life’s depths!

He would remember all his family fondly, with love and deep emotion…and usually a word or two of advice…and please don’t ask him to write!

Surviving Joe: His mother, Joaquima of Morris, Manitoba, father, John of Sweden…both 92 this year. Loving spouse, best friend and home collaborator for 28 plus years, Judi (Houdi, he’d quip with a Spanish accent) nee Cochrane of Nelson.  His beloved daughters and their daughters: Teresa (Nicola), Sara and Amanda, all of Alberta; Delilah (Rob), Angela, Athena and Andrea, all in the Nelson area; Isabel, currently in the Toronto area, originally Castlegar; and Shantalla (Trevor), Alyssa, Molly, Charlotte and Hazel of Bonnington. Joe was a Grandpa at 36 years young…proud Papa Joe, all beloved girls! The oldest of 7 children, Joe was raised by his loving maternal grandparents for 8 of his first 10 years in Spain. He joined his parents and family in Germany and they moved to Canada at age 11. His siblings are John (Francine) of both Montreal and Spain; Maria (Alberta); Paul (Madeline) of Morris, Manitoba; Joaquima (Josep) of Manitoba; James (Morris, Manitoba) and the youngest, Dwight (Penticton)…all their children, Joe’s many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by beloved grandparents, many aunts and uncles and tragically, 2 young nephews – Joaquim Prebble and Andrew Pujol and niece, Andrea Cochrane.

A funeral service was held on Saturday, May 19th, 2012 at the Cathedral of Mary Immaculate with Father Jim Ratcliffe presiding. Joseph was interred at the Nelson Memorial Park Cemetery.


Those we love don’t go away

They walk beside us everyday

Unseen, unheard but always near

Still loved, still missed and very dear
