Joseph A. Cermak of Dauphin and formerly of Pine River Manitoba went to be with the Lord on Thursday October 25, 2018 at the Dauphin Regional Health Centre after a lengthy battle with cancer at the age of 77.
He was born to Frank Sr. and Mary (Chernyk) on November 20, 1940 at Ethelbert Mb.
Joe was married to Connie (Kostiuk) Aug 31, 1968.
Joe came to faith in Christ on October 26, 2007 and was baptized on July 15, 2010.
It was this faith Christ and the work of the Cross was paramount in his life and we know that his wish would be that all who read this would come to know the Lord.
