Joshua P. Taylor 1977 - 2018  

Joshua P. Taylor
, age 40, passed away Thursday September 27, 2018.   Josh was born October 28, 1977, and resided in the village of Creston.

Josh was a 1997 graduate of Wadsworth High School.   After graduation he did many things but discovered he had great skills for concrete work. 

Josh is a beloved Father, Son, Brother, Grandson, Uncle and Friend.   God brought a beautiful daughter into Josh's life April 3, 2007.   From that day she was the love of his life.   We found a writing amongst Josh's things that he had written at some time with a butterfly drawing next to it.  "A Beautiful Butterfly like my Beautiful Daughter, who I love so much and miss all day ever day I'm not with her.   She makes me so happy and proud to have her as my daughter, my li'l princess, my li'l girl, my best friend, and the only reason I'm alive and care to live for.   She's my heart and every day I get to love her is the best day ever, and I thank God for her every day.   She can be anything she wants to be. If she try's hard and wants to be.   I Love Her."   Josh cherished every moment with his daughter and he was a loving father.

Josh was also an amazing artist, which he passes on.   Josh was full of jokes and laughter with his made up songs and rhymes, he put a smile on many faces.   He always had something to give, big or small.   He was a hard worker, a collector of stamps and cards.   He enjoyed riding his bike.   He had a great green thumb and was a very smart knowledgeable man.   Josh was a truly likeable, caring and giving man who loved many.   This is the side of Josh that we will tell stories of and pass on.   Our family has lost someone so dear and special to our hearts.   He will forever be loved and missed until the end.   Until we meet again Josh, we love you so much!
