Joseph Vincent O’Grady
October 3, 1939 - April 25, 2022
It is with deep sadness that the family of Joseph Vincent O’Grady announced his passing in the afternoon hours of Monday, April 25, in Fort Langley, BC.
Joe is survived by his sons, Gord and Michael, and his sisters, Anne O’Grady, and Kathy Faber.
Joe was the middle child of six children. In his teens, he moved to Toronto to live with brothers and while he was living there, he met Donna Marie Felushko, the love of his life.
Joe was a family man whether it was being a father to his two boys or being a grandfather to his 5 grandchildren (Brooke, Brett, Courtney, Breanne, and Brendan). In more recent years it was assisting with the care of Donna, his wife as she passed in 2013. Joe was loving towards his family and those he cared for.
Joe was an accountant for the majority of his career which took him to 4 different provinces and provided him the opportunity to be the project accountant on the renovation of the Montreal Forum in 1969.
As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or the Red Cross.

My deepest condolences to the family. Joe was always friendly and loved a good conversation. He will be missed
Michael, Gord & families our sincere condolences in the loss of you dad. Great memories of your dad during our friendship of many many years. Plenty of laughs & lots of eye rolling by my best friend Donna, at some of the outrageous ideas Joe would present to us. His chatter will be missed by everyone.
What can I say about your dad, my brother-in-law for sixty years. He loved my sister and he welcomed me as child, a teen and a young adult, especially to be part of the family. Often, he felt like a big brother! And he had such a memory for people, places and events. He is missed. Condolences to you and your families.
I will miss his telephone calls and stories. He was a very caring person and loved his family dearly. Rest in peace Joe with Donna and all your loved ones that I know are up there. Love from your sister-in-law.
Dad thank you for all the lessons you taught me and all the laughs you gave me. Say hi to mom for me.
I’m so sorry Mike, my condolences to you and your family. I loved hearing you tell me so many stories of your dad and he lead a good life raising you as an amazing son.
