Joseph Sikorski

November 14, 1932 - November 27, 2012


Joseph Sikorski passed away peacefully at Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson, British Columbia on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 after a short battle with cancer.

Joseph was born to Michael and Minnie Sikorski in Nelson on November 14, 1932. He was working as a bellhop at the Hume Hotel when he met his future wife Barbara Stevenson, whom he married in 1961. He went on to work at Staffords Sawmill in Harrop for four years and then as a deckhand on the Anscomb for twenty-five years until he took an early retirement in October 1990.

Joe enjoyed cross country skiing, golfing and working around his house.

He is survived by Barb, his very devoted wife of 51 years. His two children, Mike Sikorski and Monica (Gordon) Leclair, four grandchildren Cassie, Joey, Cody and Nicky, two sisters Mary Richardson and Anne Turner of Rossland, BC, and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Lee Mackay and all of the 3rd floor nurses at Kootenay Lake Hospital.

Cremation has taken place and at Joe’s request, there will be no funeral. As an expression of sympathy, family and friends may wish to make a donation to the Kootenay Lake Hospital.
