A DATE has been announced for the funeral of a Daventry teenager who died in a car crash.

The funeral of Joe Butler (pictured) will be held on Friday, March 30, at Holy Cross Church in Daventry, starting at 11.15am.

Joe, who lived in Chaucer Way on the Headlands estate, died aged 19 when the black Volkswagen Polo he was driving crashed on the A5 in the early hours of Sunday, March 11.

His family described him as a ‘great son’ and a ‘wonderful brother’. Tributes have also been paid to him online at Facebook.

Joe was well known among the town’s younger generation, particularly for his skills on a BMX bike. He regularly used the New Street Rec skate ramp.

All Joe’s friends are welcome at the church service.
