Joseph Lawrence Butera II

Joe was a graduate of Brewer High School and went on to serve in the Army National Guard’s 112th med co (air amb) having served for 22 years, and completed tours in Bosnia, Kuwait and Germany. He was Sergeant in his unit and along the way, earned many awards.

In addition to serving his country, Joe enjoyed hunting and fishing with his friends and family, loved his vehicles and he absolutely loved telling stories. Joe cherished his time with his loved ones most of all. His laugh and jokes could always put people in a better mood. To no surprise, he maintained his sense of humor till the very end. Joseph was a loving son, husband, uncle, cousin and brother. He was always there for others and willing to put others before himself.

Joseph was predeceased by his father who passed away in July 2000. Not a day went by where he didn’t miss him and think about him.

He is survived by his mother Anna, his devoted and loving wife of 27 years, Cindy (Tear) Butera; daughter, Jennifer Witmer and her husband, Ryan; three grandchildren, Alex, Alyssa and Ariel; his brother, Larry Butera and companion, Teresa Hallett; a sister, Diana Cote; a nephew, Reggie; nieces, Kayla and Danielle and her husband, Rob, as well as uncles, aunts and cousins.

The family would like to give a special thank you to Angie and Debbie of CHCS for the special care given to Joe in his times of need as well as John Legassie and Cathy Morris for always willing to lend a hand.

Joe will be missed by so many people who love him and will cherish him always.

A Funeral Liturgy outside of Mass will be held 10:00 a.m. Saturday, June 30, 2018 at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center Street, Bangor.
