Guthro, Joseph Anthony, age 93, of Havre Boucher and Linwood passed away in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish on May 9, 2024.

Born in Linwood, he was the son of the late Timothy and Ada (Delorey) Guthro.

Joe was a carpenter.  Small but mighty, Joe would, and did, respond to every challenge presented, regardless of the size with, "No problem, I can do that".  He was generous with his time and talent and continued to apply his trade up into his 90`s.  Hammering during the day and dancing  (especially to Newfie Fever) during the night brought Joe much joy.

He will be fondly remembered, and greatly missed by his children: Mary (Eddie), Antigonish; Joey (Elizabeth), Antigonish; Tom (Joanne Chow), Toronto; Eugene (Sherrey), Elgin, Ont.; Marie, Edmonton; Kenneth (Tina), Trenton, Ont.; eight grandchildren; five great grandchildren; brother, Bernie, Monastery and sister Emily, Antigonish.

He was predeceased by his wife Theresa (Green) and an infant daughter.

Visitation will be in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish on Saturday, May 11th,  from 7 to 9 pm and St. Paul's Resting Place, Havre Boucher on Sunday, May 12th from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm.  Funeral Mass will be in St. Paul`s Church, Havre Boucher on Monday at 11:00 am with Father Allan MacPhie presiding.  Burial in the parish cemetery.

Donations in memory may be made to St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Palliative Care Unit or St. Paul’s Luncheon Fund, Havre Boucher. Online condolences:
