It is with a heavy heart that I am sending out this e-mail to inform you all that Joel Courreges has passed away.He made his transition on Friday, 10 May 2019 about 4:57 pm.
We will send out another email when Carol (Joel's Surviving Spouse) and the family informs us with the details of the Celebration of Life and Joel's Final Run ... he will be having his final resting place in Tahoma National Cemetery.
THIS IS THE UPDATE THAT CAROL COURREGES HAS POSTED ON FACEBOOK on May 11, 2019:
It's with heavy heart I have to tell you that my best friend, hero, my heart and life partner slipped away peacefully with his children and myself by his side. There are no words to describe how alone and lost I feel. But, his strength was something to aspire to . He never complained and Lord knows he had a right to. He touched so many lives and had great love for all of you. It was his purpose. Thank you all for loving him.
The next update will be with details about his Celebration of Life and trip to Tahoma National Cemetery. I hope you can join us.
If you would like to send a card to Carol, I am enclosing her address below.
