Joseph Daniel Reashor

It is with a heavy heart that we share the unexpected passing of Joseph Reashor, age 81, on March 6 at his home in Little Bras d’Or. He is survived by his loving wife, Loretta, son Dion (Mirriam Pinote Reashor) and daughter Kimberley. He is also survived by his grandchildren Mitchell Burton (Mags Bawtinheimer), Candice Reashor (Seb Gabriel), Madison Kaiser(Seth Badger), and McKenzie Kaiser. Joe would have been a great-grandfather in June of this year. Poppy will be forever in our hearts. Joe is also survived by his siblings, sisters Yvonne Boudreau, Beverly (Larry) Keel, Debbie Fraser, Carol Anne Jessome, brothers Gerard (Vera), Kevin (Linda), Brian (Sherry), David (Dianne) , brother-in-law Johnny MacNeil,sisters-in-law Gloria (Sheldon) Whyte, Greta Gardner, and many nieces and nephews.

Joe was born and raised in Little Bras d’Or in the house where he lived for the past 41 years. He left home at the age of 16 to work on the lake boats and at Domtar in Ontario for many years. In his later years, Joe spent his working days as the caretaker of St. Joseph’s Parish and cemetery. He also sold headstones forJ.D. Steele & Sons Monuments.

When he finally retired, Joe enjoyed his days out in his garage, sitting on the deck, morning coffees at Bras d’Or Tim Hortons and afternoon coffee in North Sydney Tim Hortons, and taking leisurely drives. He also had many of his early morning coffees with friends at the parish office. He will be dearly missed by his coffee buddies.

Joe will be remembered for his generous heart, helping hand, and grumpy, gruff attitude. If you would like to donate in his honor, you can give it to St.

Joseph’s Parish or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The Funeral Mass will be on Thursday. March 14th, 2024 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Joseph Church Little Bras d’Or.

“Through memories, the ones we love live in our hearts forever.”
