Born in Meaford on September 10, 1957, Joe was the son of the late Albert and Irene (nee Lavers) Harmer.
Joe was the much loved brother of Garry Lougheed and his wife Velma of Duncan. He will be remembered as the proud ‘Uncle Joe’ of Angie Cain (Brent) and Tammy Barrett (Grant). Joe spent many years working alongside his good friend Steve Staveley at his shop in Heathcote. He loved working on vehicles of all shapes and sizes and enjoyed working for many years at Longs Garage in Thornbury. Joe was well known to many in the Thornbury area as the kind and patient gentle giant with a friendly and welcoming smile.
