 He was an educated young black man with dreams and ambitions to educate others. Spending time with loved ones was one of Joshua’s favorite things. With his vibrant personality, beautiful soul, and a smile that could light up any room, he made an impact on everyone he ever encountered. He was a very intelligent young man, and he was able to accomplish more in his 18 years than some could in a whole lifetime.

Joshua will forever be remembered for being charismatic, selfless, swaggy, and wise well beyond his years.  One of Joshua’s quotes was:


“One must search deep within, let go of all unneeded emotions, and learn to be consistently aware of one’s oneness. Become Mentally Sound”
