Mr. Joseph “Joe” Raymond Wandler of Coalhurst, beloved husband of Mrs. Betty Wandler, passed away peacefully at Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, October 9, 2023, at the age of 73 years.
Joe’s love for his wife Betty, his children and grandchildren was unconditional, and spending time with them was something he loved. He was passionate about playing hockey and played on the Wilkie Mustangs and the Wilkie Outlaws. He was also a member of the Coalhurst Legion and served in the Navy League.
He worked in fiberglass for 47 years, and loved to show us all of the finished products that he was so proud of. He even made a dune buggy out of fiberglass with his son. Joe also loved going camping with his family, coaching baseball and watching his children and grandchildren play sports.
After retirement, dad (grandpa) grew fond of puzzles, diamond art and listening to old country music. The love dad had for mom was incredible as she was his everything and he was hers. We believe that the 54 years of marriage and love kept our dad (grandpa) with us longer than he had to be. He loved us with all he had, and we loved him so very much, but now he can rest in peace.
Besides his beloved wife Betty, Joe is survived by his 3 daughters Tracy (Otto) Kooiker, Sherry (Tyler) Watmough, Sheila Wandler (Daniel Kashman); 1 son Trevor (Judith) Wandler; grandchildren Brody and Brooklyn Watmough, Colton and Kayla Kooiker, Kadin and Oden Kashman, Presley and Sophie Wandler; 2 sisters Joan (Robert) Hawkins, Hellen (Danny) Miller; 4 brothers Edward (Maneth) Wandler, Philip (Leanne) Wandler, Chris (Brenda) Wandler, Wendlin (Dianna) Wandler.
