Loving, giving, and a true friend, Joshua Lawrence Eliason was born July 25, 1989 in San Jose, California and came to Colorado Springs when he was four years old. He was a 2007 graduate of Coronado High School. Joshua was known fondly to his friends as "Huggie" because he was giving of his hugs and hugged you with genuine compassion. He loved playing video games, listening to music, he was an animal lover, enjoyed and excelled in technology, achieved his yellow belt in karate and was proud to be "Goth."
