Obituary for Joseph Stosic

Joseph Stosic, February 22, 1933 – October 16, 2020
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. Joseph passed away peacefully at the age of 87 on Friday, October 16, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Care Group. Joe was born in Sibenik, Croatia. Prior to immigrating to Canada, he lived and worked in Germany and served in the English Army in London England. He survived a very difficult childhood surviving WW11. He knew that immigrating to Canada would provide the opportunity to build a good life and have a family that he dreamed of. He then met Ursula Shaefer, married and together enjoyed 5 children. They parted later in life but always remained committed to their family. We will all treasure so many great memories of him. He always had a very playful soul and extreme charm. He loved to go dancing, visiting friends, socializing, playing chess on Sundays and just visiting with his family. He had a knack for showing up at the least opportune moments, but we loved him for that. He always had a small pocket full of cashews (broken not whole). Joe could be found at Renco Foods for his daily adventure or stopping at the Marina to enjoy beautiful Lake Superior. Joe loved to stay up on world news and especially all sports. He really was a wealth of information. Joe lived a happy healthy life almost to the very end. Joe will be sadly missed by his children, Bronko (Karen) Stosic, Gina (Dan) Poulin, Anita Weiler, Suzi (Dave)Klages. Grandchildren, Tammy (Danny) Goupil, Sara Stosic, (Don Bradley), Daniel (Kylee) Bois, Jenice Bois (Ryan Christian), Samantha Poulin (Daryl Novak), Mitchell Lehmann (Amy Broome). Great grandchildren, Morgan, Avery, Jayson, Brooke and Jack. He will also be missed by his longtime friend, Anne Wowchuk, daughters, Kelly and Lesley. Joe is pre-deceased by his parents, sister, Maria, brothers, Zvona, Bronko and youngest son, Mark Stosic. He is survived by sisters, Maida Erceg and Dora Stosic in Croatia, and Niece, Maja Erceg in London, England. Joe will be laid to rest with Mark at St. Andrews Catholic Cemetery. A private family service is being held. We are very grateful to all the staff at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph’s Care Group for their committed and loving care during this difficult time. Should friends desire donations may be made to your charity of choice. Online condolences may be made at

We are so sorry to hear of Joseph's passing. A very nice Man who always went out of his way to chat when we would see him. He was a familiar face around my husband's garage. Please accept our condolences and know our thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.

That is a great picture of your timeless Pa.
I will always remember him by his warm gracious smile.
It was the one that Joe would always greet you with. He would always stop to talk and ask questions of interest and share conversation leaving his warmth in his wake. That is the same greeting smile Joe had in the 60’s or 70’s after seven Stosics piled out of a Volkswagen after arriving at the Maki’s so that our Dads could watched Hockey Night in Canada as we played and visited. I can picture the excitement of both dad’s on the floor bent in front of the tv and shouting “scores”. We all got excited with them even if we weren’t watching the game. So sorry for your loss.
Sincere sympathy to Bronco, Gina, Anita, Suzie, Mitchell and the entire extended Stosic family.
Pa is with Mark now.
“But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” 2 Samuel 12:23 KJV
