Joseph “ Joe” Spitkoski

We are incredibly heart broken to announce the peaceful passing of Joseph “Joe” Spitkoski on April 14, 2021 at the age of 65 surrounded by the love of his family. Joe was a remarkable Husband, Dad and Grandpa. Joe leaves to grieve his passing and honour his memory; wife Linda, and children Seth (Sarah), Sheydeen (Paul) Mraz, and Amber, grandchildren Joe, Roy, Paul and Taraz. Joe is also survived by his brother Emil (Marisa) Spitkoski, and many family and friends along with numerous nieces and nephews and extended family.

He was predeceased by his twin brother, John, parents, Elizabeth and Vincent Sr., brother, Vincent, father-in-law, George Randahl, and brother-in-law, Danny Sobon.

Born and raised in a loving family in the Fern Creek area, Joe grew up to have a strong work ethic and his leadership proved successful and he was promoted to manager of offshore drilling operations where he further positively influenced the lives of many. He loved his work, but he was a home body; he enjoyed simple things, puttering around the house, tinkering in the garage, spending time with family, camping and family vacations. Joe had a special love of camping and fishing at the Brazeau Dam enjoying the outdoors with his family. He had a love for animals and spent time watching cooking shows and sharing a good BBQ with family and friends.  He especially loved spending time with his loving and rambunctious grandsons (Joe, Roy, and PJ). He will be remembered for his strength, courage, wisdom, and positive attitude.

Cremation has taken place and no service will be held as per Joe’s wishes. If desired, donations in Joe’s memory can be made to Cause for Critters, P.O. Box 7852, Drayton Valley, AB, T7A 1S9, or STARS Air Ambulance,1441 Aviation Park NE, Box 570, Calgary, AB.T2E 8M7

With loving memories of Joseph "Joe" Spitkoski. To a fantistic brother who always had a great sense of humor. He would have given his shirt off his back if someone was in need. Miss you Joe,

Linda & family
Sending you our heartfelt condolences.
We were so saddened to hear of Joe’s passing. Though it’s been a long while since catching up in person with you and Joe, I had connected with him on Facebook and enjoyed the pictures he posted of his grown up family and his grandkids, all of whom I could tell he was so proud of.

"Do not look for me in this place, for I am not here. Instead look for me in the hearts of those whom I loved, for it is there I shall always be.”

Sincerely, Craig & Debbie Schmuland
