DUPERRON, Joseph "Joey"


Joey obit

On January 4, 2021, Mr. Joseph “Joey” Duperron of Upper Mann Lake passed away at the age of 68 years. 

He is survived by his loving children, Jenny Bespalko (Roger), Jeff & Joey Jr.; 5 grandchildren, Samantha, Jessica, Mackenzie, Casey & Taylor; mother, Louise; 3 brothers, Bernie, Camille & Robert; sister, Marguerite.  Joey was predeceased by his father, Edmond. 

Joey Sr. was a loving father, grandfather and friend to anyone he encountered.  An avid motor-sports enthusiast, he was always either working on, watching, or talking about race cars, or anything with an engine for that matter.  Joey was known as Driver 66, and a reliable mechanic who knew his way around any engine.  He also enjoyed driving around in his truck to his usual destinations, spending time playing cards or horse-race with his family, or taking the grandkids on a trip to the Ashmont store.  Always joking around, Joey could put a smile on anyone’s face.  He gave the best advice to his family members who carried on his racing legacy.

A Celebration of Joey’s Life will be held at a later date.  Cremation has taken place.  To send condolences online, please visit
