In January 2009, his first child, Alucard was born. Josh was a devoted and loving father. In December 2012, he married the love of his life, Deirdra Allard. They had a child, Celestyn, and Josh loved his daughter with all his heart. He loved to tinker with engines and mastered the skill to become a small engine / diesel mechanic. Later, in life he loved gardening and canning his harvest. Josh loved Christmas and hanging out with his family. His family will cherish these times and memories. He had a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh. Josh will be greatly missed.
