Joseph Letendre Jr., age 70, of Middlesboro, Kentucky, passed away peacefully at his home on April 24, 2022.
He was born in Poughkeepsie, New York on May 3, 1952 to the late Joseph and Beth Schuster Offerman Letendre.
Joseph was a veteran, proudly serving his country with the United States Marine Corps. Being in the USMC was something Joseph felt honored to be a part of. The morals and values he learned while serving shaped his character, and molded him into type of man everyone inspired to be like. He was also a graduate of Bell County Vocational School, a member of the American Legion, Homeland Security, and the Bell County Volunteer Fire Department. He never met a stranger and could immediately bond with anyone that would take a moment to talk with him. All who were blessed to call him family or a friend will remember what a special and unique person that he was.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his Wife Mary Letendre, Daughter Joy Michelle Wyatt Freeman, Grandson Sammy Donato, Great-Granddaughters Iris Menay Warren and Aurora Shaelynn Letendre, Brothers Alexander and James Letendre, Sister Beatrice Voncow, Uncle Bill Letendre, Father-in-law Lige Brock, Mother-in-law Mary Brock Howard, Brother-in-law Richard Brock, Sister-in-law Rowena Gail Jones, and Son-in-law Boo-Boo Warren.
