Those left to honor his memory include his parents, Chad and Sue; a sister, Megan Cox, a brother, Jacob Cox; grandparents, Pamela Cox, Jessie Sage and Don Sage; great grandmother Viola Barkema; aunts and uncles, Kim (Allan) Hoy, Sherry (Randy) Elmore, Terisa (Bob) Schlueter, Brandon Cox, Richard Barkema and Randy (Allyson) Sage, as well as many other family members and friends. Preceding Josh in death were grandfather LaMont Cox, grandfather Dwight Barkema; great grandparents, Bill and Pat Haacke, Spencer and Marge Cox; great grandfather Junior Barkema; great grandmother Marie Gruis along with other loving relatives who have passed.

Joshua was registered as an Organ Donor, however, due to the measures taken to try and save his life, sadly, he didn't have the chance to do so.
