The news was devastating. It hit Joe Eppele like a ton of bricks to the side of the head.

His father, Tho​mas, had been diagnosed with brain cancer in December.

He was hospitalized in Terrace Bay, transferred to Toronto’s St. Michael’s for two surgeries, then moved to Sunnybrook Hospital. He spent his last few days in the Ian Anderson House hospice in Oakville.
