Joseph "Joey" DUPERRON

March 5, 1952 - January 4, 2021


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 www.gracegardensfuneralchapel.com.

To Jenny, Jeff, Joey and Families: Garry and I were very saddened to hear of the passing of your Dad, Joey. We have so many memories of when he first opened the garage, the Chamber of Commerce, the Customer Appreciation parties and his great community involvement. We remember how he used to do the fireworks every Heritage Day and did such a great job with that. It was such a great thing that he was able to share his passion with racing and engines with you all for so many years. He will be truly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of great sorrow.

Our sincerest condolences, so sorry for your loss.

From: Lynn Lawton-Paquin

Jenny, Jeff and Joey, it is with great sadness that I send condolences to you and your family. One of my first jobs was working at the gas station when I was in high school. What I learned about your dad was that not only was he a talented mechanic, he was kind, patient, funny and hard working. Sorry for your loss, he will be missed.
