JOSEPH SAMUEL DACQUISTO (published on July 06, 2009)

JOSEPH SAMUEL DACQUISTO September 5, 1959 July 2, 2009 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Joey, 49, an amazing husband, great dad and loving son. Left to cherish his memory is his wife Wendy, two children Jason No. 1 Son (Vanessa) living in Calgary and Terri Rebellious' (Joel) living in Toronto, father Sam and all his family and friends. Joey was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Samuel Joseph Dacquisto. As the only child, Joey had a hand for mischief in his earlier years, building the character many knew and loved. Joey had completed his Grade 10 and later joined the navy where he worked as a boiler engineer on the SS Gatineau. On October 29, 1983 Joey married his best friend and soul mate, Wendy Wood. In his early 20s, he created a small business, which with his strong drive, can do attitude and help from his wife, flourished into a large general contracting company. Joey lived in Teulon, Manitoba for the past 25 years where he built his home and started a family. He loved to hunt, fish, farm and had a great passion for the outdoors. He always finished his days watching cartoons with his family, while enjoying a beverage. Few could keep up with Joey's rammy' attitude, anytime he would call his friends they would look forward to their next adventure. His cartoon of the day' will be missed by all. A celebration of Joey's life will be held on Thursday, July 9, 2009 at the Dacquisto residence, stop by anytime between 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., with a toast to Joey's life at 3:00 p.m. Please park along the highway when you arrive. The family wishes to extend sincere thanks to Joey and Audrey Zaik and to all our great friends and family for their love and support. Additional thanks to Sherri from Mackenzie Funeral Service. Dad, you were one hell of a father and a great role model. We'll miss your quirky remarks, even your unwanted' advice we love you Dad. To my Stupie, always remember forever and always. You will be greatly missed and loved by each and every one of us, know that you are always in our hearts. Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, loudly proclaiming'WOW! What a ride!
