Joshua Stephen Polk of Sahuarita, AZ, died June 20, 2009 at the young age of 31. He was born in Peoria, IL on March 31, 1978 to James S. Polk and Tamela S. Robbins. Joshua was a loving son, an adoring husband, and a devoted father and brother. He touched many people's lives. He was always there for his friends and family and will be deeply missed by all. One of Josh's passions in life was sports which he made sure his children learned just as he was coached by his father throughout his school years. He coached his eldest daughter's softball team, coached his youngest daughter in soccer, and had begun to teach his son how to throw and hit a baseball, the proper way to throw a football, and how to dribble and shoot a basketball. Josh was an avid gamer, however his favorite game was "World of Warcraft". His dream was to return to Peoria, Illinois with his family to work for the Department of Corrections. Survivors include his widow, Shauna and children, Brianne, Shelby, and Jadyn of Sahuarita along with his sister, Brandy and Leonard Green and nephews, Aidyn, Maddox, and Shamus of Tucson; parents, James Stephen (Stephanie) Polk of Benson and Tamela Robbins-Montillo of Illinois; grandparents, James (Doris) Polk of Illinois, Shirley Polk-Browning of Tennessee, and Dick (Pat) Robbins of Illinois; and step-sisters, Xochitl, Jasmin, and Violeta C. of Tucson. Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same. Services were held at GREEN VALLEY MORTUARY AND CEMETERY on June 26, 2009.
