It is with heavy hearts that we say good bye to our beloved Joe Marrinan who passed on July 29, 2021. Dear son of Joyce Marrinan and the late Pat Marrinan (2017). Long time and loved friend of JoAnne Taylor and family. Dear brother/brother-in-law of Helen (Les), Deb (Rob), Mary Lou (2018), Mike, Jim, David (1997) and Dwain/Buzz (Jenny). Loving uncle of Shawn (Lea), Kelly (Darryl), Kerri (Andrew), Chris (Kim), Kyle, Brett, Rachel, Aidan, Tristan and Cole. Loved great uncle of Mya, Brooke, Liam, Kylie, Logan, Carter, Mason and Halle. Uncle Joe was known as the Candy Man to his nieces and nephews, but also to the children of his many friends. He always had sweet treats to share with the little ones. Joe will also be missed by many Aunts, Uncles, cousins, friends and former co-workers.
Joe was a dedicated and hard-working concrete former and finisher. He took pride in doing his best work and was always ready to lend a helping hand – his were monstrous hands. He was a gentle giant and true jack of all trades. Some of Joe’s greatest joys in life were a glass or two of Gibson’s finest, a joke, a smoke, and good old country music. He shared lots of laughs with his family and his many, many friends. He shared a very special relationship for over 23 years with JoAnne Taylor who was his closest friend and biggest supporter. After years of hard work, Joe was enjoying retirement and living life at a slower pace.
As per Joe’s personal request there will be no service. We invite his friends and family to celebrate his life by raising a glass and remembering the good times.
Cremation has taken place. A private family interment will follow at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery. Haskett Funeral Home, LUCAN entrusted with arrangements.
“The last goodbye’s the hardest one to say.
This is where the cowboy rides away.”
Memorial donations can be made to St. Joseph’s Hospice or a charity of your choice.
