  1. Joe Macedo was the BEST father-in-law I could ever hope for. I loved him very much! He adored my two sons Julian and Jordan. He will live on in my heart forever! I wish to extend my sincere condolences and prayers for Lucy Macedo, and the entire Macedo family.

  2. Dear Ben and Elizabeth
    I was honoured to be part of Joe’s life as his nurse in the clinic. He was a pleasure to work with and tried hard to work through his health issues. Even when he was frustrated he always had a special smile for me. Wishing you both strength and comfort as you say goodbye to your father. He will be missed. Hugs for you.
    Johanna Buisman.

  3. Mrs. Macedo, Paul, Ben, Lucy,

    I am so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. He was truly a kind and considerate person and I always enjoyed our visits in my Edmonton years. I believe his focus was always his family, and he lived a long and full life surrounded by love.

    I’ll always remember him trying to get me to 1) eat, and 2) quit flying. He was a wonderful gentleman, thoughtful and generous with his time, and he will be missed greatly.

    Thinking of you at this difficult time.
