Uxbridge- Joseph Edward Brothers Jr., affectionately known as “Lil Joe”, “Joe Joe", "Jeb" or “Joey Brown”, 59, passed away on Sat. Sept. 16, 2023 after a courageous 8 year battle with cancer.
He is survived by his 3 children, Alicia (Brothers) Frigon and Timothy Joseph Brothers both of Uxbridge, and Matthew Brothers of Woonsocket, RI; his mother, Louise D. (Greenwood) Brothers of Uxbridge; a brother, Michael E. Brothers of Uxbridge; his niece and great- niece Candace Brothers and her daughter Emma of Uxbridge. He was a “brother” to many good friends who kept him going through his illness including Lisa, Jim, and Madison Haley. He also leaves behind his beloved “grand dogs” Jager, Oakley, Mitzi, Daisey, and Teeter. He was predeceased by his father Joseph Edward Brothers Sr. in 2015 and his sister Cindy L. Brothers.
Born in Whitinsville, MA on October 15, 1963, Joe was a lifelong resident of Uxbridge. He was a graduate of Blackstone Valley Tech, Class of 1981. Joe was employed as an auto mechanic and as a machine maintenance mechanic, working for several area companies including, Ken’s Food Service, Spring Rebuilders, and Breyer’s Ice Cream.
A jack-of-all-trades, master of none, Joe could fix anything. He was a gentleman farmer who enjoyed restoring and rebuilding antique tractors with his best friend Joe Podles, tractor pulls, vegetable gardening, fishing and boating with friends. He was an avid Ford Man, usually driving his father's Ford F250. He also enjoyed yearly trips to Maine to ride his Arctic Cat F1 snowmobile with his buddies.
Joe kept a positive attitude through his illness. He continued to make his family and friends laugh, in spite of his cancer. The family would like to thank the Milford Hospital 4th Floor Nurses and Staff for their compassionate care, kindness, and support.
Friends and family are invited to attend a "Celebration of Life" for Joe and to celebrate his first heavenly birthday, on Saturday, October 14th at Tavern 6 two 1, 621 Pound Hill Rd., N. Smithfield, RI 02896 from 1-3 PM.
