It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Joseph (Joe) Peter Aspeleiter on June 3, 2021 at the age of 83. He was predeceased by his parents John and Mathilda (Brilz); his brother Rufus and his sister Millie Rance; and his son-in-law Sheldon Fritz.
He is lovingly remembered by his four children Dean (Laurie), Shannon, Belinda, and Lana (Jim); his grandchildren Courtney, Ryan (Arienne), Jennifer (Matthew), Kyle, Kimberleigh (Thomas), and Kaytlyn; four step-grandchildren residing in Michigan; and his great-grandchildren Braylon, Callie, Ashtyn, and Taliya; and his loving partner Tina.
Anyone who knew Joe knew him as a good friend and a pleasure to be around. Everyone he came in contact with, from the neighbours in his complex, to those he met in the food courts over coffee, to those who had the privilege of being long-time friends and family, can speak to the light and joy that Joe brought to their lives. His witty sense of humour could break down barriers and he was always able to find the light in any situation.
Joe is remembered as a hard-working man who took great pride in his work, especially in his career as a truck driver. Without a doubt, the role that Joe was most proud of was his role as Papa and Great-Papa. He loved to hear and share stories about all of his grandchildren and his house was adorned with photos of his grandkids spanning across decades.
A special thank you to the staff at the SICU Unit in the Regina General Hospital for their amazing care and attention.
Any donations in memory of Joe can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
A Private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Joseph Joe Peter Aspeleiter June 3rd 2021..
