Joshua Nathan Epple
Joshua Nathan Epple was taken from us suddenly on February 15, 2014.
Josh was born in 1972. He began working at Drewes Meats in Noe Valley at 15 and eventually assumed ownership in 2000.
Josh was a loving and proud father to his 6 year old son Justice. He could often be seen walking his loyal canine companions Mazey, Bebe, and Doop from his butcher shop to the Day Street dog park.
Josh was a die-hard fan of San Francisco's Niners and Giants. As well as an avid basketball player, he also enjoyed a wide variety of sports including softball, biking, hacky sack, and motorcycling, with snowboarding being his favorite. Music, especially Megadeth and NIN, was an important part of his life and he loved seeing bands at various San Francisco venues. Entertaining and food were also key interests; barbecuing, cooking, and hosting friends and family as well as frequenting local establishments.
Josh is survived by his son Justice, mother Anna, Karl, brother Isaac, sister Lilah and a large group of people he called his extended family.
A memorial will be held at St. Paul's at 29th and Church, Friday February 21, 2014 at 1:30 p.m.
