Condolences to friends and family. I used to play video games at Josh’s and Aaron’s house when they lived in Evansville, late 1990s. Can’t specially recall playing D&D with him, but I’m sure I did. The dude will be missed.

Like one of the family. Loved by all of us and will be greatly missed. I will miss our ‘dork’ and ‘geek’ conversations we had about comics and wrasslin. We could spend hours talking and joking about anything. Always had something funny to say. Love you bud
Our hearts are broken… sending our deepest sympathies to Josh’s dearest ones !!! Remembering Josh and Aaron at our wedding in the 80’s … what a joy it was !!! all our love, Mendy and Kevin
Worked with Josh at Berry both times he worked there. He was a great guy, he will be missed even if it’s only here on FB ) where we would chat ) but he always will be a good memory to me, until I see him again. Prayers for his family🙏🙏

I ran with Josh and Aaron during a Zombie Obstacle Course in Knightstown, IN. We were what you call survival buddies. I remember when Josh would get tired, we would wait for him to get his breath back, and he would just keep fighting on like a trooper. I’m gonna miss talking to him and seeing his life in pictures. Safe travels, buddy ❤️
