Josh registered to be an organ donor and we are so proud that he chose to give the gift of life to others. That gift is a testament to his kind heart and generous spirit. We are honored to have had him in our lives for his short 31 years. Josh was a talented, artistic, bright, funny, and very loving young man. He loved to paint and played a mean guitar. He loved Halloween and all things anime. He loved his family and was always thinking of others. He had an infectious laugh and always seemed to find the positive in any situation. He was a unique soul who set the stage for others to be the best of themselves. He accepted others for all that they are and stood up for those who needed it. He was a supportive older brother, uncle, and loving friend. He will be greatly missed!! We are immensely proud of Josh and his generous heart, sweet spirit and that he had the forethought to register as a donor. We know Josh will live on in 7 recipients and that truly warms our hearts and eases our minds. First of all we would like to thank from the bottom of our hearts, all those that have offered prayers, good thoughts, stories, memories and/or donated funds for his memorial. Many have reached out asking what help can be given and we are so very grateful for the kindness. In lieu of food or flowers we are asking for donations to help with the hospital and funeral expenses.
