Joseph William Marco, 63, of Fairplay, CO, passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 2, 2018 in Breckenridge. Born Dec. 25, 1954 in Pittsfield, MA, he was the son of the late William E. and Verne E. Marco. Joe was a graduate of Berkshire Country Day School and Williston Academy and attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Bucknell University. Joe’s love of skiing drew him to Colorado where he worked as a ski instructor and guide as well as a skilled carpenter, owning J. Marco Construction of Fairplay. Joe met and married his wife of 39 years Kari (Bjornstadt) in Breckenridge and together they enjoyed skiing and many of the things Colorado has to offer. Joe is survived by his wife Kari, daughter Hilary and son-in- law Dave Hassan and granddaughter Clara, of Lafayette, CO, sister Joan and brother-in- law Bob Little of Pittsfield, MA, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws along with friends and clients from all over the world. Joe was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Leslie.
