Josh was known to those who knew and loved him for his kind and tender heart as well as his contagious smile. He was also known for his warm hugs, which ultimately earned the nickname of “Ledibear.” His friends often referred to him as a helper and a healer as he was always ready to lend his attention and support to anyone suffering. Josh was the kind of man who would give the shirt off of his back to someone in need, and literally did just that on numerous occasions. Even in his darkest of days Josh clung to his life’s purpose to help others and was able to save 23 young lives from leaving this Earth too soon as a result of addiction
Josh embodied a life of compassion and wile it was too short lived, his love for his family and friends will never be forgotten. Josh brought light into an often dark world and will be greatly missed.
