Joseph Anthony Scotece, born 1949, took his journey into heaven on October 23, 2018. He was born in Norfolk, Virginia to Regina and Joseph Scotece and was the only born son of three children.
After graduating Catholic school, Joe joined the Navy and entered the Vietnam War. His service brought him to North Idaho where he knew he was home.
Joe was a heavy equipment operator most of his life and an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He loved online poker, golf and a good steak dinner. The only thing he loved more than that was his family.
He is survived by his two sisters, Gina Dara and Fran Neaves; two sons, Charles Scotece and Nathen Scotece; a daughter, Jessica Boone; and seven grandchildren, Gabriel, Jacob, Alicia, Rashard, Quintton, Aven and Anico.
Joe will be remembered by his love he always showed for his friends and family, a true definition of an American man.
Funeral services will be held Friday, Nov. 9, 2018, at Priest River Cemetery in Priest River, Idaho. Service is at 1 p.m., followed by a remembrance potluck at Popeye’s downtown Priest River.
The Scotece family would like to invite you to celebrate the life of Joseph and all are welcome.
Sherman-Campbell Funeral and Cremation Services in Priest River is in charge of arrangements.
Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book, which can be found at shermancampbell.com.
