    Josh was a good guy and a great friend. I first met Josh in the early 2000โ€™s when Patrick Miesner brought a buddy of his to play Clinton County baseball with us. I ended up getting him a job at my work at the time at Germantown Seamless Gutters. He always had a smile and was always laughing about something and made the days at work fun. He will be sorely missed. My condolences to the entire family and friends for his loss.

      Josh and I shared a million laughs all through our years in school together, caught lots of fish together when we got older and enjoyed every minute of it. He was the funniest guy I’d ever met and was always laughing. I’ll miss you, buddy.
