On Tuesday morning, officials from the Nationalist Party mourned the loss of Perit Joe Dimech.
A former member of the Nationalist Party, a former Mayor of Victoria, Gozo and a former member of the Planning Appeals Board, Joe Dimech leaves behind his wife, Marisa, six children, as well as their children.
In an emotional social media message, PN spokesperson for Gozo Affairs, Chris Said, said:
“A friend left us who I used to meet with regularly for many years. I will never forget our discussions and how in the middle of a debate, he would manage to slip in a joke or share his experience.
“I learnt a lot from you. I will continue to cherish the experiences you shared with me every time we met for a coffee.
“I will never forget the hard work you oversaw in Gozo, within the Nationalist Party and in Victoria (Gozo) where you served as Mayor.
“Rest in peace, Perit.”
