Josh was a father of 4 beautiful boys and a beautiful wife. He was artistic and started to draw cars and planes when he was just three years old. He was a very giving young man and helped kids in our neighborhood when their bikes would break…they would ask Josh to fix them. He devoted time to his boys taking them motorcycling, ski boarding and other places.
His dad and grandfather were both Vietnam Era Veterans so he comes from a military family fully aware of what can happen in times of war. The realization doesn’t help when you get the news that parts of your son are buried in Willamette National Cemetary in Portland, OR and more recently in Arlington after “significant” remains necessitated another burial…this time at Arlington National Cemetary.
Josh was a loving soul and it showed throughout his shortened life.
