Obituary of Kenneth Joseph "Joe" Smith
Peacefully passed away surrounded with love, on Thursday, August 20, 2020, at the Douglas Memorial Hospital, in his 72nd year. Beloved partner and best friend for over 40 years to Glenna Rose. Loving step-father of Rebecca (Mike) McCutcheon and Kevin Rose. Special Grandpa Joe of: Jonathon, Clarissa, Logan, Jake and Emily. Joe will be missed by his brother Pete (Gail), sister-in-law Gail (Ron), brother-in-law Clayton (Rose), and by many nieces, nephews, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents; Maurice and Ann, also by his brother and sister-in-law Larry (Robina).
Joe will be remembered for his fun personality, dedication and sense of adventure. For over 20 years he proudly owned Lambeth Pool and Spa, in London, and was a member of the Lions Club. With Glenna, they learned to fly airplanes, traveled, and enjoyed going on cruises together. In their retirement they moved to Ft. Erie and enjoyed walking along the lakeshore and through the forest with their dog Barkley to Waverly Beach. We will miss his fun spirit and watching him tinker around with old radios. A special thank you to the doctors and nurses at the St. Catharines Hospital and at the Douglas Memorial Hospital for their attentiveness and special care.
