In London, Ontario, on Saturday, February 18, 2017, Joe passed away peacefully to join his much missed mother and father Ocaria and Manuel Soares Moreira. Joe leaves behind Elaine, his wife of 41 and a half years and his constant companion since elementary school. Joe and Elaine have three children: Jennifer Cordeiro, Marcella MacLennan (son-in-law Charlie MacLennan) and son Matthew Soares. Joe is survived by his two brothers and two sisters: Manuel Soares (Linda), David Soares (Cathy), Theresa de Melo (Albert) and Maria Soares. Two little men who will miss their grandpa are Luca and Marco Cordeiro. Joe's two furry friends, Brady and Quinn, will miss their long walks, special treats and cuddling up on his lap. Special appreciation to Father Bob Remark and Heather Cushing from Holy Family Roman Catholic Church for all their love and spiritual support. Heartfelt thanks to our wonderful family doctor, Dr. Hugh Rooney, Sherry Vergilio, Joe's fantastic nurse, VON, Paramed and the caring palliative care providers, especially our fabulous Nancy who helped provide Joe with his wish to pass away at home.

When God pushes you to the edge, trust Him fully, because only two things can happen: either He will catch you when you fall or He will teach you how to fly.
