ACTON, Maine - Joseph D. Letourneau passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on August 10, 2020 at the age of 42. He was born in Ware, MA. He spent most of his youth in North Berwick, ME after his family relocated in 1987. He graduated from Noble High School in 1996, where he was a strong competitor in the wrestling program. In 2000, he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science from Unity College where he loved competing as a member of the Unity Woodsmen Team. Joe was a loving and devoted husband, son, brother, and friend. Words cannot express how deeply he will be missed. Joe was an entrepreneur at heart, starting his first business shortly after graduating from college. Soon thereafter, he joined forces with his wife, Mary and the two of them developed several successful businesses over the years, including Earthworks, Letourneau Forest Products, Keepin' It Local, and their most recent venture, Local 130. His businesses were a direct reflection of his many skills and passions in life. At the time of his passing, Joe was fulfilling his appointment as Acton's District 2 Road Commissioner. Joe will be remembered as a homebody who always looked forward to sharing laughs and beer with family and friends. He had a lifelong passion for farming and spending time outdoors. As a young man, he enjoyed spending his free time restoring antique tractors and participating in tractor pulls at the local fairs. He always treasured time spent with his father and brother, hunting and fishing. He was particularly fond of spending time with his parents and family while camping or making maple syrup from start to finish. He will be forever remembered as "Uncle Joe" and for his gentle demeanor, frequent phone calls, and sense of humor. His wit and jokes will be missed by all. Maple Saturdays and cookouts with family and friends will never be the same without him.
