Josh attended Kelly Walsh High School and came back years later with Miller Insulation as a Industrial Insulator to help remodel and rebuild the new school.
He had a passion for fishing and became one of the young ones to hold a Lifetime Fishing License, he once was stopped by the Game and Fish Warden who had claimed he never had seen such a license held by someone so young. Josh loved spending time with his family, especially the times he took his daughter to the movies, the father daughter dance and the years he spent making a very special doll house for Alexis.
Joshua unconditionally loved his best friend and fiancée, Amanda Bates for over 17 years. Together with their daughter, Alexis they shared many adventures.
Times will be missed especially around his mother's oak table, the boy's all sharing movie quotes and pranking and picking on one another.
