Josef Trinkl

Josef came to Canada in the early 1950s and got his first full-time job in the mining industry with Cominco in Trail. He made his home in Rossland where he raised his family. During his journey, he traveled the world and made many good friends and had a fulfilled and enriched life with many a story to tell.

Josef passed away peacefully on December 26, 2013 surrounded by friends and family. He is survived by his daughters Marlene, Julianne and Patty and by his son Mark. Josef leaves behind dear grandchildren Molly, Johnny and great-granddaughter Avery.

Josef will be missed by all that knew him; Donna, Trevor, the Rossland Order of Eagles and the folks at Kuk’s Tavern in Northport.
