Joaquim (Joe) Antonio Calado


It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Joaquim (Joe) Antonio Calado on April 12, 2021.

Joe will be greatly missed by his family; common-law wife Lana Anderson, her daughter Sydney (Scott McLeod); his sister Maria (Claude Cabral); his nephew (Jeffrey), niece (Melissa) and many other relatives, close friends and coworkers.

Joe was born in Portugal, November 9th, 1953 to Antonio and Maria (Clara) Calado.

For 42 years he truly enjoyed driving bus for the Edmonton Transit System.

He was an avid sportsman, both actively; hockey, wallyball, golf; and passively cheering on his Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers.

Joe was a very special man who strongly lived and believed the simple rule of treat others as you would want to be treated.

Rest in peace Joey, until we meet again.

A Celebration of Joe’s Life will be announced when we can safely gather in numbers.

Tristin Calado

I love you dad, you’ll forever be in my heart. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me, I don’t know where I’d be or how I would have ended up if I didn’t have a dad as amazing and special as you to put me on the right path. You taught me the importance of family, unconditional love and how important it is to keep the people who mean the most to you close. I’ll always strive to be just like you, truly a one of a kind special and amazing person. I’ll always keep all our good memories with me forever. I can’t wait till I can see you again. I love you dad.
