1930 ~ 2012
Mr. Joseph F. (Joey) Bossio, beloved husband of the late Isabel Bossio, passed away at the Good Samaritan Society in Medicine Hat on Thursday, February 16, 2012, at the age of 81 years. Joey was born in Fernie, B.C., on February 26, 1930. This is where he was raised, went to school and played hockey. Joey was a skilled player and scored many goals for the Fernie Rangers in the 50’s. Following his playing days, he remained in the game as a coach for the Fernie Junior Sabres. Joey loved the outdoors and could often be found fishing, hunting or tending to his garden that he loved so much. He was also a sports enthusiast. Along with playing darts every weekend possible, he enjoyed curling, watching baseball and of course, hockey. He liked to travel and looked forward to trips to Eureka and Kalispell with his dear wife, Isabel. Joey will forever remain deep in the hearts of his family: son, Glen (Chris) of Medicine Hat; granddaughter, Kendra (Morgan) and their children, Shaughnessy, Devin and Dylan; grandson, Brent (Melissa) and their children, Alexis and Kacey. Along with his wife Isabel, Joey was predeceased by his parents, Patsy and Teresa Bossio. In honouring Joey’s wishes, a private family service was held at Cook Southland Funeral Chapel. Private interment will take place at a later date. (Condolences may be expressed by visiting www.cooksouthland.com
