Obituary of Joseph Thomassen

THOMASSEN: It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Joseph Thomassen on August 2, 2022. Joseph was born on May 9, 1930, in the Netherlands. He later moved to Canada in 1958. He completed his high school education in Germany at the Academy of Gold and Silversmith. His cultural background was Dutch, and he spoke many languages that included Dutch, German, Belgium, and English. Joe immigrated to Canada where he opened and owned his own jewelry business for 60 years. He was a city councilman for eight years, sat on the school board for 14 years, and was part of the multicultural board. He also helped build a few soccer parks around Brandon. Joe was predeceased by his first wife Jose in 1987. On January 21, 1989 he married Edna Clarkson. Joe's greatest love was his family, and he will be lovingly remembered by Edna, son Randy (Linda), daughter Terry (Randy), stepchildren Lyndon, Shannan, and Karla, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. A private family graveside service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to charity of choice, if you wish.
