We are all heartbroken at the passing of our Stric Joža. Our deepest condolences to our Strina Dragica and our cousins Helen and Joseph, along with his wife Lauralee and children Rylin and Eva.

My Stric Joža was a force to be reckoned with. He was a hard-working man and earned the respect of all who met him. Taking his role as family patriarch very seriously, he always shared his valuable advice and wisdom with all who needed it. Stric Joža was an inspiration to all. He single-handedly brought our families to Canada from Croatia to find a better life and because of him, that is what we have and we will be forever grateful. His legacy will never be forgotten and his memory will live on in our hearts.

With all our hearts, from Mate and Zlate Doždor, Mirjana and Nick Conte, Lidija Sprem, Boris and Kim Doždor, and our families. ❤️
