BANGOR - Joshua Richards Constantine, 37, died unexpectedly June 2, 2012, in Bangor. He was born April 4, 1975, in Bangor, son of Joseph and Kathleen Constantine. Joshua attended Bangor schools, Tilton Academy and Outward Bound Adventure programs, where his love of nature and his spirit were nurtured and cultivated. Josh's love for skiing eventually led him to become an employee of Sugarloaf Mountain and Attitash Mountain. Josh was a lifelong rock climbing enthusiast, who established many rock climbing and bouldering routes around New England. In addition to his parents, Joshua is survived by his daughter, Kaya, the light of his life; his sister and always hopeful friend, Meghan and husband, Craig Fellis, and their children, Casey, Jonathan, Brittany, Orion and Thomas; grandparents, Walter and Velva Constantine; aunt, Susan Warren and her children, John and Margaret Thibodeau, and their daughters, Tricia and Mollie, Deborah and James Walker, Kathleen Warren and David Warren and fiancee, Julie Comerford; several loving great-aunts, great-uncles and cousins. Joshua will be dearly missed by his best friends, Chris and Michelle Ruhlin; and his coworkers at Herbal Tea and Tobacco Co., where for the past 15 years he greeted customers and artisans with kindness and enthusiasm. Relatives and friends are invited to call 5-8 p.m. Thursday, June 7, at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center St., Bangor. Private graveside services will be held at Oak Grove Cemetery, Bangor. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date and time to be announced. Those wishing to remember Josh in a special way may make contributions in his memory to WERU-FM, P.O.
