It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Joel "Joey" Leonard Durelle, 60, of Sackville, and formerly of Moncton, at the Drew Nursing Home on Wednesday, June 29, 2022.  Born to Leonard and Sandra (Arsenault) Durelle in Summerside, PE, Joey was one of six children.

Joey was predeceased by his father, Joseph Leonard "Ti Nom" Durelle.  He will be dearly missed by his mother, Sandra Ann Durelle and five brothers and sisters, Roxanne (Ron), Brian, Janet (Peter), Ken (Lisa) and Kelley (Jason), as well as his nieces and nephews, Nicole, Justin, Laura, Bradley, Stefannie, Brandon, Nolan, Dylan, Nadia and Jayda and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Joey loved having visitors and loved being outdoors whenever he could.  He loved to listen to  country music and would especially grin from ear to ear when he heard a song from George Jones, his Uncle John or Uncle Marc, and would sing loudly along with them.  He used to love to play guitar and pick the banjo.

Joey's life was not an easy life, as he fought a hard battle since the young age of 16, which later rendered him to be dependent on others.  

Joey was blessed to have kind and dedicated care workers along his journey.  A special thank you to Albert, Stephen and Mary, we are forever grateful.  He so looked forward to his outings and loved hamburgers, pizza, and coffee.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackvillle, NB (506-364-1300).  Cremation has taken place. Joey will be laid to rest with his father in Hardwicke, NB, following services to be announced at a later date.

For those who wish to do so, donations in Joey's memory may be made to Open Sky Co-operative; Drew-Tantramar Foundation Inc. or Camp Tidnish.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the online memorial at or through the Jones Funeral Home Facebook Page.
