Obituary For Joseph Kato

It is with the greatest sadness, that the family of Joseph Kato, share his sudden passing in Grande Prairie, AB, on Saturday, November 20, 2021, at the young age of 68 years.

Joseph was born in Uganda on January 1, 1953. Joseph was one of eight siblings, who from birth was filled with compassion, love, and kindness for his family and friends. He met what would turn out to be the love of his life and mother to all three of his children, Agnes Gibson at just 16 years old.

Joseph was a caring, and devoted father and husband, who dedicated every waking breathe to his family. He was a hard-working, and selfless man who could never stop doing for his family and others. A mechanic by trade in both automotive and aircraft, he worked his entire life sharing his gift of repair, and never-ending thirst for learning. He was both a master and a student, who always took the time to share his knowledge and experience, but was also always open to listening with a humble spirit.

Joseph will be sadly missed by his wife Agnes and his children: Julian, Raymond, Fiona, and dog Maya.

Because We Love You So
Time will not dim the face we love,
The voice we often heard on many special days,
The many things you did for us,
In your own very special ways.
All our life we’ll miss you,
As the years come and go,
But in our heart, we’ll keep you,
Because we love you so.

  • Since I was young in uk I knew Joseph even when Him and started dating was there, I made him laugh a lot he made me laugh, and made me feel loved. I remember when I went see him and Agnes in Brighton from school got carried away and forgot the time I was supposed to be back at school, he gave me his gentle look after him and Agnes dropping me off. Ags do you remember telling me off? Joseph was in stitches. You had a beautiful soul and you loved and loved even those were hard to love. Sleep 💤well for me you're on this long holiday. Love always and will miss you always ❤RIEP Joseph 🙏❤

  • Jo, i somehow cannot seem to comprehend that you are gone. A dear friend to our family, who in turn became our family. Grocery shopping will never be the same as that is where we had our weekly chats and caught up on family news. You were truly a gentleman with big heart and a soul that shined so bright. We will miss you dearly my friend. May the Lord wrap his arms around your family at this sad time and comfort them. Ramsay, Tracelle and Family
