Josh will always be remembered for his ability to make you smile. He gave the best hugs and could melt your heart with his letters, expressing his love. Josh cherished his time with his family, devoting his life to making them proud of him. He loved to be with his parents, brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew, making them laugh and celebrating in their accomplishments. He idolized Mason and MacKenzie, longing for kids of his own just like them. Josh mastered the game of pool, winning Dooly's National Championship.
