Josh was always so kind. A great customer and friend of ours. He and his dad are like family to us and Josh will be missed. Josh’s smile always lightened the mood and made work more enjoyable. Truly the only person that greeted us with a smile on every occasion. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

I loved Joshy like a son.He was my fiance’s best friend (david honeycutt) then he turned into my daughter’s Jacqueline boyfriend then my daughter’s fiance. Joshy was a sweet,lovely young man. He was a big part of our life. When I was married in 2006 Josh was my husband best man. He loved his music ( Metallica).. He loved camping, hunting, outdoors.You just dont know how much you was loved by my family the Stearman We will always love you joshy. Until we see you again….

Words seem so feeble, in moments like these.
Life is so precious, and death such a thief.
The depth of your pain I cannot comprehend.
Love is a bond that death cannot part.
Gone from this world but still alive in our hearts.
Josh was loved by all. His quiet shy manner was his most endearing quality.
You will be greatly missed. God’s peace until we meet again.

One of my fondest memories of my son in law is how he would have this slight smile and laugh when I called his name, I have always called him Joshua, I would ask him why he laughed and he would say ” you call me Joshua ” I will always treasure all the memories with him and Joshua will always be in my heart! My love and prayers of comfort to his family!

Josh was an amazing man! He was my best friend, my husband, an amazing daddy to our fur babies for 8 years! Josh loved his family! Enjoyed camping, riding his Harley, four wheeling, and absolutely loved working on his black Betty (dodge truck). I will NEVER forget the late night dancing in the kitchen. The crazy jokes we would tell each other. . Always trying to cook our steaks to perfection like his dad cooked them. He looked up to his dad and adored his mom! He was so sweet and caring to all! May you Rest In Peace Josh. You will always have my heart. It’s never goodbye it’s always see ya later! Love you to the moon and back!

So sorry! Josh’s family is in my thoughts and prayers! I’m thankful I talked to him Friday when he and his father put a filter in my furnace. As always, when I asked if he had his license (meaning his H/AC license), he smiled and softly said “I’m working on it.” All who knew Josh will miss him, but his memories will remain with us.
God will bless and keep you and give you His strength to carry on during these sad times!
With my many thoughts and prayers, Martha
