Mr. Joseph Drover of Upper Island Cove passed peacefully away at the Health Sciences Centre, St. John’s on Wednesday, May 6, 2020. Mr. Drover was 72 years old.

Joseph Drover was by all accounts a true family man. Everyone who knew him well can tell you about his strong passion for knowledge, ancestry and family heritage. He was a very kind and intelligent businessman who loved his community and his craft. He loved his family dearly and this was evident every single day of his life. His own family tree has grown beautifully with his wife, very much rooted in commitment, selflessness and love. We all love you very much, may you rest in peace.
