Anyone who knew Joshua, knows that he deeply loved his family. Joshua cherished his mother and would say to his friends that he would, “always take care of her.” Joshua enjoyed hunting with his dad. Together they spent countless hours watching the canyons for deer and elk at sunrise, creating memories and bonding as father and son. As a brother, Anna and Patricia, will remember his hugs and fun-loving nature.
Joshua would do anything to help anybody. His contagious smile and passion for life will never be forgotten. His family and friends will miss him more than words can say. He is survived by his parents, Vincent and Aurora; his sisters, Patricia, Anna and her husband Nehaad; his maternal grandparents, Louis and Lucille Martinez; grandparents, Len and Louisa Gallegos, the families of six uncles and many close friends.
Since childhood, Joshua was a faithful member of the Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church. Regardless of other commitments, he was known for always setting an early alarm to ensure that he would be on time for Church. Joshua spent many hours as an altar server, assisting the priests with services.
