Obituary for Joshua J. Young

Joshua J. Young
Rhodes, Michigan

Be Happy! If you are reading this I am at peace, free from pain and with God. I am thankful for many blessings! I am especially thankful for my family and friends who loved and supported me; I hope I gave the same back.
I was born on August 24, 1987 in Mesa, AZ to Michael and Stephanie Young. They ensured I was welcomed into a wonderful world of extended family and friends. I loved my family and being surrounded by people, I was always excited for family events.
Besides my warm hearted and loving parents I leave behind many that I cared deeply for:
Corey (Jillian) Young was the best brother anyone could ask for. He filled in my weaknesses and I filled in his, we made each other better people. My other Dad Tom and brother Huey, thank you for the great memories. You are awesome and gave me a different perspective. Jesse (Brian), my sister from another Mother, your light is always the brightest-shine on!
My brand new nephew Maxxon, I was so excited to be an Uncle and we had future plans for fishing, 4-wheeling, ball playing and many fun things, but it was not meant to be. I did get to spend days rocking you, tickling your feet, made you smile first and even changed a doozey of a diaper. Corey wanted me to be your Godfather, but life threw a curve ball and I am now your official guardian angel. Good thing we learned early to roll with the punches.
Thank you to all my Aunts and Uncles: Jeff (“The Godfather”) (Kristy) and Joe, they taught me to work with wood and my hands (the rocking chair turned out great). Paul (who I am with now) taught me to always help those in need. Auntie Kristie gave me unconditional love and lots of dinners! Pam shared love and affection. Carol (Godmother) and Ron gave me support and lots of fishing. Trish and Jim and all of my Virginia Family, thanks for the cookouts, games, and laughs. All of my cousins, you gave a lot of fun and teasing. My lifelong childhood friends, I always enjoyed a good laugh and you never failed to make me laugh and smile. To the other special people (you know who you are), thank you for being such a big part of my life.
I was told that when I was born the Dr. held me up high and stated, “Joshua Joseph Young, a strong bible name. He will go on to do good and great things.”
Well, life didn’t turn out the way I imagined, I was as imperfect as anyone and I knew it. At the end of the day how much money you have or how many degrees doesn’t matter. What is important? In some small way did I make the world a better place? I hope I made my mark by being a good son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend. I listened, I was not judgmental and I didn’t believe in holding grudges. I wanted everyone to get along and not be mad at each other. I always made an effort to stop and help when I saw someone in need. I hope I was always kind and I like to think I gave the best hugs.
I loved all sports and could talk with the best of them. I also loved being outdoors and felt at peace by the water, in the woods and at the mountains.
When one dies I am not sure what happens but I envision it as a happy place surrounded by all those we love that have gone before us. I have many who left us too early and I picture my first hugs with my grandparents, some of whom I never met on earth. Well worth the wait!
Stick up for each other, mention me by name, and keep the memories. If you ever want to talk I will lend an ear.
I leave you with these parting words: Be a better person today than you were yesterday. Keep fighting the good fight. Be kind. Be caring. Don’t judge. Let go of grudges. Remember everyone you meet has their own struggles, and always give someone a second chance. All of this will come back to you ten-fold, more than any other investment.
This tribute is written for Josh by his family.
