He loved spending time with his family, whether he was cooking and helping his mom in the kitchen or purposely aggravating them and getting on their nerves. Joshua shared a passion of sports with his father. He was a great baseball player and enjoyed many years growing up on the field. No matter what he was doing he could always be found listening to music, especially his favorite artist Lil Peep. He had a caring and soft heart and was a wonderful son, father, brother, uncle, and friend. Joshua loved his family and friends dearly and his memory will live on through them.
He was preceded in death by his father, Gregory Todd Storey; and his grandparents, Doris and Bill Storey, and Maurine Reed.
