They had four beautiful children and were very active in their church and community. He loved camping and family gatherings. Later he and his family resettled in Rocky Mountain House, AB. Joe loved to tell stories about his family and would eagerly show pictures of his grandchildren to everyone he met.

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife Lenore Drevenak (Gorcak), his four children Chandra (Jason) Hlady, Ginny (Jason) Edey, Chad Drevenak, Matthew (Jessica) Drevenak, his ten grandchildren, and many more family and friends for whom he loved and cared for deeply.

Lenore and family: We were so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing! It’s at times like these that we especially appreciate the gift our parents passed along to us in our faith, and are so grateful you share the same.

It was amazing to be able to view the memorial, prayers and funeral from Mexico, (where we were attending a wedding), and to listen to the stories and prayers. Joe truly was a good man blessed with faith and a wonderful family.

I recently met a fellow at Mass in Okotoks who knew Joe from working in Pincher Creek, and he commented on how highly he thought of him and his family!
