Joshiah owned R “N” R Construction and took pride in his hard work. He was always willing to help anyone. He enjoyed hosting large family gatherings and barbeques. Family was very important to him. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and watching football with his nephews. He rarely missed a sporting event that one of the kids was participating in. Joshiah raised Sabrina and JJ as a single parent most of their lives. He had a strong faith in God, believing God loved him, even if her didn’t deserve it.
His family and friends were his world, and to have him as a friend was to have a true friend.
