Born in Brant Township, son of the late Andrew and Susan (nee HEHN) WAECHTER. Joseph was a member of the Old Timers Hockey League and a former member of the Bowling Mixed League. He was an avid Slow Pitch fan, both playing and watching.
Survived by his wife Karen (née KERR) WAECHTER, son Andrew (Carrie) WAECHTER of Saint Thomas, daughter Michelle (Gary) LANDSBOROUGH of Cambridge, grandchildren Dylan, Michael, Braedon and Zackery. Also survived by his brothers Lorne (Mary Lou) WAECHTER of Hanover, Ralph (Diane) WAECHTER of London, sisters Wilma REITZEL of Waterloo and Marjorie (Willard) LANG of Chepstow. He will be fondly remembered by several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by daughter-in-law Pauline WAECHTER, his brother Alfred WAECHTER and brother-in-law Ab REITZEL.
Visitation was held at Mighton Funeral Home, Hanover, on Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. with Vigil Rites at 8: 30 p.m. A Funeral Mass was held on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 10: 30 a.m. at Holy Family Church, Hanover. Father Mervin PERERA officiated. Interment in Holy Family Cemetery, Hanover.
Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Diabetes Association were appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
Joe was a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother and a true friend to so many.
All of Joe’s 68 years were spent working hard. By the age of eight, Joe was working, baling hay, delivering newspapers and working at the bowling alley, in order to help provide for his mother. This work ethic continued all of his life.
Joe married his teenage sweetheart, Karen, in 1964 and spent the next 43 years with his loving wife. During those years he raised a family, ran his own business, saw his children (Andy and Michelle) get married, and welcomed a grand_son (Dylan) into the family. Joe’s daughter-in-law Pauline passed away in 2001. Andy has since remarried and Joe welcomed three new grand_sons (Michael, Braedon and Zackery) and a daughter-in-law (Carrie) into the family. Joe welcomed a new son-in-law into the family in 2000 (Gary) and they became close Friends.
Whenever Joe was needed by his family, he was there. Fixing up houses for his kids, always there to lend a hand, no matter what. His pleasures in life were simple and he enjoyed working around the house. He had recently retired and was finishing his basement now that he had the time.
He thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Friends over coffee at Tim Hortons.
In his younger days, Joe was dedicated to playing baseball and hockey, as well as snowmobiling with his wife and children.
Joe was a fervent believer in God and his Catholic faith. He enjoyed attending church in Walkerton when his wife wasn’t working. Like Jesus, Joe was a carpenter by trade and we are sure that he is building a house in heaven and waiting to welcome the rest of his family home.
Special thanks to Mighton Funeral Home for their kind treatment of the WAECHTER family. Thank you to Constable BREEN for adding respect and dignity to the funeral procession.
