Joe passed away peacefully on March 13th, 2021, in his 94th year. Born in Pribram Czechoslovakia, he immigrated to Canada in 1951 to finish his engineering degree at the University of Toronto, and moved to Montreal in 1954.
He will be greatly missed by his wife of 64 years, Iva Kohoutek, his two sons Ivan (LynnTwigger) and Michael (Isabelle Jodoin) and his adored grandchildren Nicholas, Laura, Xavier, Ariane, Katia, and his first great-grandson Harrison whom he never saw because of Covid, as well as many friends all over the world.
