Joseph Elmer "Joe" MacMullin
Joseph Elmer "Joe" MacMullin – age 68, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Joe in Mountain Lea Lodge, Bridgetown, on Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Joe retired from Eden Valley Poultry after 41 years and had a side project with Scotian Gold that kept him busy after his working days. Joe was a hard worker who took pride in his work both on the job and at home. He earned his coworkers respect and admiration. Joe loved listening to the oldies of rock and roll and loved to dance up a storm in his younger years. You could hear him coming up the road driving his red Datsun, windows down and tunes blaring. Joe was always puttering in his garage and on occasion he would sit and chat with the neighbours. He took pride in his yard and gardens, both children and seniors delighted with his collection of Garfield, Mickey, Minnie Mouse, Alf, Dumbo, Sylvester and Tweety Bird and many other Disney characters throughout the years. He was a big kid at heart. Joe was always stepping up to help a neighbour, friend, or family. Joe would do whatever necessary for his folks or siblings or anyone in need. Joe loved to bowl, travel, play cards, do jigsaw puzzles and was an avid Blue Jays fan. Joe was a quiet, gentle man who loved and was loved by his family, his coworkers and his adopted family at Mountain Lea Lodge. His Alzheimer’s journey has ended here, "Fly free my love, you have earned your wings." You are loved and will be sadly missed, forever in our hearts. Joe is survived by his wife, Theresa (Kerr); daughter, Jennifer MacMullin, Cambridge; son, John MacMullin, Kentville; sisters, Joanne (Ivo) Patterson, London, Ont.; Marie (Dave) MacDougall, Helen Dinner, Theresa (Anton) Malnar, Margaret McKelvey, Kimberly Rafuse, all of Okotoks, Alta.; brothers, Tom (Brenda) Jefferies, Florence, Cape Breton; Michael (Maxine), St. Catharines, Ont.; sister-in-law, Catherine MacMullin, St. Catherines, Ont.; many nieces and nephews.
