Joshua Pinocci Obituary
Joshua Martin Pinocci

Great Falls —Joshua "Joshapee" Pinocci, 22, of Great Falls, died July 23, 2014.

His memorial service will be at Hillcrest Lawn Memorial Chapel on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. Schnider Funeral Home is handling arrangements.

Joshua was born in Great Falls, Montana on October 16, 1991.

Joshua attended school in Great Falls, Roosevelt, Paris Gibson, GFHS and Paris Alternative.

As a young child, Joshua enjoyed church with grandma Shirley, being with grampa Rudy and Julie.

Joshua took karate, gymnastics and swimming classes his elementary years and also enjoyed cartoons and home movies with Mom; roller skating; friend sleep overs; camping; walks around town with Mom; Galaxy Games; ventures at Belt Creek; video games; computers, music (ICP), driving fast, fireworks; body art; live poker, beer pong; and most of all, he enjoyed being with his friends (his chosen family) and their children.

Joshua was "Uncle Josh" to many and loved every one of them dearly. He was doing what he enjoyed doing the past few years … out on his own… in with friends…fishing, camping and being surrounded by friends who have shown how much they truly love him. Joshua was living his life.

Thank all who hold Joshua dear to their heart; it brings our family some peace knowing he was loved so much. I pray that Joshua's fatal mistake is a lesson for all those who know and love him. Joshua had a gentle soul and a huge heart, but he wasn't using his head. Our prayers are with Vincent Biggs and his family, as he recovers from his injuries. Joshua would have never wanted to hurt anyone.
