Joseph Amédée Muise

Joseph Amédée Muise

It is with profound sadness that the family of Joseph Amédée Muise announces his sudden passing at home on July 06, 2022, at the age of 68.  Joseph Amédée (Joe, Joey Bear, Pip) was born in 1953 in Chéticamp, NS, to the late Joseph Amédée Muise and the late Alice Camus.

With a solid work ethic, Joe started working at the age of 14 as a fisherman with his dad. He then went on to serve his community as Manager of the Cheticamp Arena where he worked for 10 years. From there, he made a life changing decision to partner with Marcel Larade and take over the Cheticamp Ambulance Service where he began a long career as a paramedic and eventually a supervisor with EMC, then EHS, serving various regions of Cape Breton Island and receiving a number of prestigious awards. During this time, he supported many families and made life-long friends that were still in his life even after retirement.

Joe was a leader who gave selflessly of himself to everyone he knew, especially his family and closest friends. From coaching sports teams, to mentoring new paramedics, to working tireless days and nights serving his community as a valued member of the Sacred Heart Community Health Centre Charitable Foundation, as well as being involved in numerous other volunteer positions over the past several decades.

Most recently, Joe found fun and relaxation sharing a coffee and many laughs with his special group of friends or fishing off the wharf with his dearest fishing buddies, both old and young. Despite all these other roles, accomplishments and new hobbies, Joe’s greatest joy came from spending time with all the “kids” that came into his life over the years. He treated them all like his own and there’s nothing he wouldn’t have done to see each one of them smile and they all looked to him for guidance and advice as they grew older.

Joe is survived by his loving wife, Marjolaine Muise; his stepson, Kenneth Chiasson (Leah); his sisters, Beatrice Romaniuk (Dmytro) and Yvette Muise; his grandchildren, Moira Clark (Greg) and Ainslee Chiasson. He is also survived by his in-laws, Lise Roach (Daniel), Nicholas Chiasson (Ginette), Gilberte Larade (Gelas), Jeanne Leblanc (André), Jeannine Chiasson, Jean Maurice Chiasson (Wanda), Marc Larade (Lyne); and 14 nieces and nephews.

His memory will live on in all those who were fortunate enough to know him. He will be sadly missed and never forgotten by all his family and dearest friends.

A celebration of life will take place at a later date, to be determined by the family. Any donations can be made in Joe’s memory to the Sacred Heart Hospital Charitable Foundation.

    I had the pleasure of working on Joseph Amédée’s team while he ran the Cheticamp Ambulance Service with Marcel Larade. He was always kind, had a great sense of humour, & was a great mentor. He will surely be missed by the community, friends, all who knew him, & of course, his family. My most sincere condolences to the family.

  • Yvette Muise July 13, 2022 7:02 am

    My brother…I was told the first thing he said when Mom arrived home from the hospital with me (after the doctor had used the forceps on my head) was: “Why does her head look like a hammer?” ☺️ The last words I heard from him were a few hours before he passed he said to me on the phone in my hospital bed: “Ok, take care…I’ll talk to you later”. 😞
    Two days before I left for the QEII hospital here in Halifax he brought me (Mr.) Chicken and coleslaw. Said: “You have enough for 2 days”. Every time I phoned him in need he was coming up my driveway within minutes. He brought the selfless, generous..always there to help Marjolaine to me as my sister-in-law.
    His passing should never have happened let alone after only 68 yrs. Byebye Joseph Médée. J’espère que tu savait comment c’que t’était aimé et apprécié.
    (I Hope you knew how loved and appreciated you were)
