Joseph Christopher Ward, 69, of Estero, passed away Tuesday, August 18, 2015 in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Joseph was born July 3, 1946 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Joseph and Evelyn Ward, now deceased. He graduated from Provincetown High School in 1965 and from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in 1973. Joseph was employed as a pharmacist in both Maine and Massachusetts and one of the most dedicated and best in his field. He also worked for Eli Lilly for several years as a sales representative. Once moving to Florida in 2002, he shared his passion for science as an educator in the Lee County Public Schools; including being voted as the best substitute teacher. Joe (as he was commonly called) was an incredible (the best!) Dad, and loving husband. He was also known for being one of the most kind, fair, and compassionate people you would ever meet.

He is survived by his beloved wife of over 45 years, Debbie Ward; two loving children, Joseph Ward of Ayer, Massachusetts and his wife Heather and Laura Ward of Estero, Florida; as well as four sisters and two brothers; and his beloved pal Max (dog).
