Joseph Labbe

Portland, ME -  Joseph Labbe, 92, of Portland died peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation and Residence.

He was born in Brunswick, ME on April 22, 1924 a son of the late Joseph A. & Katherine (Makatly) Labbe.  He attended local area schools and after school went on to see much of the world while he served his country.

As a young man, Joe also enjoyed working in the woods on logging crews.  He also spent many years at the Alder Street Salvation Army Store in Portland, where he endeared himself to many a customer.

Joe was a kind gentleman with a big heart and a twinkle in his eyes.  He had a great sense of humor and was always eager and willing to help anyone who asked for it.

Joe will be dearly missed by his “adopted” family the Kelley’s of Cumberland and Falmouth and his many friends at Haven House in Portland, who helped in ways to lengthy to count.


A private burial will take place in the spring at Black Point Cemetery, Scarborough

May he rest in peace.
