Joseph Michael Burtoni Obituary
On March 15th, 2018 Joseph Michael Burtoni joined his mother and father in heaven. Joe is survived by his loving wife Heidi, sons Andrew (m. Cindy) and Joey, daughter Nina, grandchildren Enzo and Jax, second mother: Henia, Siblings: Tricia, Cindy and Michael, and numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins.
After moving to Durango in 2003, Joe began his real estate career and eventually opened his brokerage, Durango Land and Homes. His passion came from helping his clients and friends find not only a house, but their forever home.
With Durango as the perfect backdrop, he excelled in cycling and was proud to share that he was a National Championship rider. Not bad for an old man!
Joe encouraged all around him to always give a 100% effort in every part of their life. He mentored both young and old across the country.
After a long battle against cancer, Joe passed away surrounded by his loving family and friends.
To help celebrate Joe, his family will host a celebration of life at Ska Brewing on Thursday, March 22nd from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm. We hope that you are able to join us. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to a local Durango cycling organization.
