Joshua knew his Lord, loved singing hymns and hearing them too.
He loved spending time with his grandchildren and friends, who took him for walks in his wheelchair. Joshua worked with sheep for two years, the dairy for ten years and piggery for twenty five years. He was a man of many talents, always willing to lend a helping hand. Joshua will be sadly missed by his family and friends. Everyone was always welcome in his home.
Thank you to all who helped care for Joshua, especially Dr. Mona Cassis and Dr. Yawney.
