Obituary for Joseph Augustine Sr.

Joseph  Augustine Sr.
Augustine, Joseph Alan – Age 58, Truro Heights. Our beloved husband and adored father, passed away on November 14, 2022. We - his whole family and his many friends - are going to miss him terribly and love him always. Joe is gone too soon and we know for certain that he felt the same way.

Joe leaves behind the greatest love of his life and wife of 28 years, Nora; his cherished and completely doted-upon daughters, MaryGayle and Shelby; and his son, Joe - handsome like his dad and just as charming - to carry on without him.

We will always remember Joe for his famous road trips, his goofy dad-jokes, and his constant pranks. But throughout all the great humour and the mischief Joe made in the name of fun, what always shone out for everyone was his heart of gold. A deeply compassionate and kind man, Joe's generosity and goodness were infinite. As his children have always known and said about their father, "Dad always managed to pour from an empty cup."

Joe is also survived by daughter, Amanda Rozell; sisters, Mary, Stephanie, Ruth, Marylynn, Sherry, Annie Mayer; brothers, Kevin, John, Sheldon, Robert, Wayne John, Clifton and Christopher.

Joe was predeceased by his parents, Stephen John Simon and Annie Bella Augustine Levi; Brian and Carol Simon; and Bruce Simon.

Donations in Joe’s memory may be made to Colchester Food Bank.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, November 26th in Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro, with Eileen Corah officiating. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
