It is with great sad­ness and bro­ken hearts that we, the fam­ily, an­nounce the pass­ing of Joe MacLeod on Fri­day, May 19, 2017 at Vic­to­ria Haven Nurs­ing Home af­ter a coura­geous bat­tle with di­a­betes. He was born in New Water­ford on Novem­ber 10, 1947, the son of Mary Agnes MacLeod and her hus­band Thomas Chi­as­son, and was the lov­ing hus­band of the late Kath­leen (Kay) MacNeil of Gar­diner Mines.

Joe will be sadly missed by his lov­ing daugh­ter, Tracy and son, Ed­ward (Kim); sis­ters, Annette (Ron­nie), Irene (Brian), Mary (Dave) and Shel­ley (Ja­nine); broth­ers, Davy (Donna), Mar­ven, Eddy and Louie (Sharon); sis­ter-in-law, Lor­raine Lewis (late Ger­ald Lewis); brother-in­law, Fin­lay MacNeil and wife Verna, as well as many nieces and neph­ews.

Joe was pre­de­ceased by daugh­ter, Sharon and son, Dar­rell; brother, Danny, and bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther, Frank House.

He was dearly loved and raised by James and Mary (Per­fect) MacLeod, and cher­ished by many aunts and un­cles. Joe had a very spe­cial place in his heart for his grand­chil­dren, Bre­ton, Ed­ward, James, Jo­lene and Jessy, and great-grand­child, Ciara. He en­joyed his time spent with his good friend, Ruth Whalen, who card for Joe dearly.

He had many friends and in­ter­ests, he en­joyed play­ing pool and darts, loved to spend time at the pen­sion­ers club. Joe was an avid walker and would be seen all over town by many. He loved to talk about the won­der­ful mem­o­ries he had from his past. He had a strong be­lief in his faith that helped him on his jour­ney home.
