Condolence: Wanted to extend my condolences Cindy & family. Joe had a great heart & the natural talent to treat everyone, instantly, as a old friend. Or at least, that is how he make me feel & everyone I saw him talk with at CW events. I am glad to have known him a little.
Condolence: Well Joe, the last time we spoke you talked about sitting at the right hand of our heavenly father up there. Let's hope you got a good seat not too far from the bathroom just like you were hoping for. Take care and say hello to the relatives for me
Condolence: I didn't see you often in the last several years but I've always thought of us as really good friends. I'm miss your smile and your laugh - and your stories. RIP Joey. You'll always be in my heart.
Condolence: Dear Mrs. Butera, Cindy, Larry and family
I was saddened to read about Joe's passing in the BDN.
I got to know Joe and his brother Larry when we served together as altar boys at St. Joseph's Church in Brewer more than 40 years ago.
I remember Joe as a funny, kind-hearted and generous guy who loved his family, parish and community. We enjoyed working together "behind the scenes" as servers for Fr. Harvey. With Joe and Larry around, there was a always good camaraderie and a joke to share.
I am grateful to Joe for his years of service to our country.
Rest in peace, Joe.
To Joe's wife, mother, daughter, brother Larry and the entire Butera family, please accept my heartfelt condolences.
