Joseph G. Guthrie (1955-2024)

Joseph Gerard Guthrie AKA Crazy Joe, 68 of Santa Fe, NM, passed away due to a suspected heart attack on April 8, 2024.

He was born in Lamar, CO in 1955 to Robert E. Guthrie and Theresa Motley and was raised by his Grandmother Erna Franklin Guthrie. Throughout his life Joe was known as the life of the party. His “Yeah Man” cheers, unique dancing, and crazy white afro will be remembered for years to come. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and having a long chat with friends while listening to a guitar shred in the background. 

Joe was preceded in death by his father Robert, sister Deborah, and nephews Sammy and Jimmy. He is survived by his ex-wife Susan (Deon) Truitt, three daughters Jessica (Kirby) Austin, Alexandria Guthrie, and Melissa (Antonio) Guthrie, brother Otis (Bobbi) Guthrie, and eight beautiful and beloved grandchildren: Leani, Marisa, Leiannette, Johnathan, Justice, Aralynne, Jacob, and Anberlee.  

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date, see the Rivera Funeral Home website for details.
