Josef (Papa Joe) SOKOLOWSKI

April 10, 1938 – Nov. 18, 2009

With sad hearts we announce the sudden passing of ‘Papa Joe’.

He is survived by his loving wife, Vieno; his two sons, Eric (Melody and Sylvia) and Alan (Shannon); along with his two grandsons, Zackery and Joshua; his brother Bill (and family) and sister Ann (and family).

“He’s Our Rock, Our Sword, Our Shield” and will be missed in our lives, also on the ice with his sled or red trike. We thank you all for your kind words and thoughts, knowing the love that surrounds us today will help with the tomorrows.

In lieu of flowers, a donation could be made in Papa Joe’s memory to Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church, 120 Horse Lake Road, 100 Mile House, B.C. V0K 2E3.
