Obituary for Joshua R Collins

Joshua Robert Collins, 29, of Stockport, Ohio completed his earthbound journey and joined his Family and Friends who Walk Beyond with our Creator on January 5, 2019 at 1:58 am at Genesis Hospital in Zanesville, Ohio, surrounded by his Family and Friends. Born on July 24, 1989 to the late Rebecca Collins and Robert Collins of Malta, Josh overcame a wealth of medical set-backs during his lifetime. He fought for every little bit of life that he was gifted and enjoyed it to the fullest.

He was one of the lucky guys, blessed with a second set of Parents, Chad & Kathleen McGrew of Stockport, who Josh adopted as his very own and loved with all his heart. A graduate of Morgan High School, Josh enjoyed parties with family & friends, he loved camping, fishing, riding on Bob the side-by side, visits to the aquarium, playing with his dogs (Willie, Toby, Sasha, & DiVa), riding in parades, listening to music, watching videos, meeting new people, teaching others the things that he knew, working on trucks with Junior and Wes, SPiTTiNG with Unicorn SPiT, drawing and Most of all Singing his Family Tradition by Hank. He was a member of the Malconta Flower Club. He was truly a “Rockin’ Dude”!
