Joseph Chatterton passed away peacefully on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020 at Baywoods Place, Hamilton. He was 94.
Joe was the devoted husband of the late Lucy (predeceasing him in 1995), and the much-loved father of James, Paul and Elizabeth. He will be greatly missed by his grandsons Francesco and Christopher. Joe was the cherished father-in-law of Deborah and Mike.
Born in Southport, England, Joe served in World War II with the British Royal Navy. He immigrated to Burlington in 1953 where he established himself in the community as a mechanic. He eventually moved to Blyth, operating Chatterton Auto Service before retiring in 1987. Joe was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion. He volunteered in various roles as a member of Branch 420 in Blyth.
Joe had a zest for life and lived it to the fullest. He was happiest sharing breakfast with family and friends, completing crosswords with his morning cup of tea, attending theatre and dabbling daily in his garden. He was a lover of music and always an active participant whether it be playing the harmonica on stage, singing along with the band or cutting tile on the dance floor.
Donations, if desired, may be sent to the Royal Canadian Legion, Blyth Branch 420, PO Box 206, Blyth, ON N0M 1H0 as expressions of sympathy.
