Josh was a former Owen Sound Minor Hockey Group player. He was first diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2001. He took time off from hockey in his bantam year and recovered from the disease in time to play midget house league. In March 2009 he was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma and
died in July of 2009 at age 24.
The family decided to ask for donations to the minor hockey group in its memorial services. "All of our kids were very involved in minor hockey and one of the passions in Josh's life was hockey", said his mom Lucia. "We were trying to think of something where he could have a legacy and it was about paying forward too. Hockey was good to him and it was good to us. We all got a lot of support from friends that were made through hockey over the years."
