On March 15th, 2018 Joseph Michael Burtoni, surrounded by his loving family and friends, passed away after a battle with cancer. Joe is survived by his wife Heidi, sons Andrew (m. Cindy) and Joey, daughter Nina, and grandchildren Enzo and Jax.

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. Joe was a generous supporter of the cycling community and was a member and sponsor of the Durango Wheel Club. He volunteered countless hours of his time for the DWC and other local cycling organizations and was a member of the Stan’s Tubeless Masters Team.

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.

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 can join us.
