things to do with the great Churchill River. He thoroughly enjoyed spending time at his and other’s

cabins on the river and was well known for knowing the river like no other! Joe retired in 2011 to the

beautiful town of Bishop’s Falls, where he lived since retiring with his love, Kay Brockerville.
