Joseph L. Jankola

January 15, 1931 – June 22, 2020
Joe is survived by his life partner Beth, sister Mary, daughter Jody, son John, grandchildren Cheyenne, Skeena, Caleb and Jared; and several nieces and nephews.
Joe was born and raised in Trail BC, where he played baseball and was renowned for pitching a seven-inning, no-hitter, game.
Joe met Beth while playing ball on the prairies when she was 16 and he was 21. They eventually made their way to the West Coast, settling in Burnaby. In Burnaby they built an advant-garde, architecturally designed home and raised their two children.
Joe was a structural engineer/draftsman, a boat-builder, dreamer, collector, community advocate, and environmentalist long before it was popular. He was a family man, good provider, generous to a fault, a lover of nature and animals.
Joe was a unique character, well-loved, and will be greatly missed by many.
Service to be held at a later date.
