- April 28, 2006

LANGRANGE - Joseph S. 'Guido' Thurston, 40, died April 28, 2006, unexpectedly to be with the Lord and his beloved mother. He was born June 29, 1965, the son of Benjamin House and Dorothy Dever. Joe was born in Portland, but followed his sister to the Bangor area. He had many friends due to his loving and caring personality, but he loved his family first and foremost along with an exceptional love for all animals. It wouldn't be uncommon to see a pet eating a steak and Joe eating a bowl of cereal. Joe was an avid painter and carpenter who enjoyed working with his hands and creating, in his eyes, works of art. Joe loved music and playing the drums, which he had done since childhood. Joe lived every minute of every day to the fullest. He believed in the human spirit and never judged a book by its cover. A forgiver of faults, Joe always brought out the best in people he met. Joe never left with good-byes only take it easy and I love ya. Joseph 'Guido' Thurston, father, brother, friend and to all others, Uncle Joe, "You are a true inspiration," we will miss you greatly. He is survived by one sister, Karen Rowe; one brother, Toby Thurston; nieces, Marcia, Shauna, and Crissy; two sons, Joseph Jr. and Nicholas; two daughters, Brielle and baby, Oceana; girlfriend, Jennifer Preston. He was predeceased by his father, his mother, one brother and one sister. A celebration of Joe's life will be held 3 p.m. Saturday, May 6, officiated by Pastor Jerry Mick at Bangor Baptist Church, Broadway. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bangor Humane Society.
