In loving memory ~
Peter “Joe” Faesen of Kamloops, B.C., passed away on July 24th, 2023, at 97 years of age. He is survived by his daughter Willy (Gerry) Blackmore of Kamloops, B.C., and son Heinie (Pam) Faesen of Prince George, B.C., as well as his grandchildren David (Kyleen), Stephen (Michelle), Kerry Ann and Jeffrey, as well as great-grandchildren Branden (Sierra), Megan (Tom), Kyan, Mya, Sydney and Kiley, and many relatives in Holland. Joe was predeceased by his wife Lena in 2004, his son Theo in 1965, his mother and father, and both sisters.
Joe was born in Brunssum, Holland, in 1926, and immigrated to Canada in 1958 with his wife Lena and 3 young children where he made a good life for his family. Joe worked at many things and ended up with an amazing career in the Hotel/Motel business that took him to live and travel all over B.C.
Joe retired to Kamloops in his 70’s where he enjoyed gardening, fishing, and hunting. His love for travel took him around the world and even in his later years went back to visit Holland and enjoyed an Alaskan Cruise.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Dickinson and to those at Overlander Care Home for the amazing care, compassion and respect shown to my father.
A Celebration of Joe’s Life will take place at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 12th, 2023, at the Delta Hotel in Kamloops, B.C.
