Joseph “Joe” Lord, 73, formerly of Bristol

BEULAH, Colo. — Joseph “Joe” Lord, 73, passed away July 16, 2023, surrounded by loved ones and friends. He was born June 28, 1950, to Joseph and Esther Lord in Concord, N.H.

Joseph was a proud member of the Beulah, Colo., community for the past 20 years. He was very overwhelmed at the outpouring of the community for his retirement celebration from the Beulah post office.

Joseph joined the army after graduation. Spending six months in the United States Army, he realized his true calling was the United States Air Force. He then spent the next 20 years traveling the world to serve the United States of America. He retired as a Senior Master Sargent (E8).

After serving our country, Jay spent seven years in Bristol Vt., with his mother, sisters and American Legion Family. Joseph was very proud to serve his brothers and sisters in the Legion, spending countless hours and years helping to serve his fellow veterans.

Joseph moved to Colorado in 2001 to begin a new chapter of life after meeting Julie Boyer online. The couple married in 2003. They renewed their vows and got re-married in the catholic church in 2018. The couple have no kids but have had several pets that they affectionately call their kids. Spending the past twenty years in the Beulah community, they have enjoyed their time with the scenery and wildlife of Beulah Valley.

Joseph is survived by his loving wife, Julia Ann M. Lord (Boyer), and sisters, Virginia (Alton) Tibbles, Elizabeth Wisell, Kathy Tierney and Diana (Luis) Cabrera. He was preceded in death by parents, Joseph and Ester Lord; brother, Edward Lord; and brother-in-law, Bill Wisell.

Any donations in honor of his memory can be made to Combat Warriors/Cow Hill Outfitters or your favorite Veterans’ organization. ◊
