  1. My prayers and deepest condolences to the family & friends of this young man whose life was taken to soon. I was the first one to arrive on the scene of the accident. He had just walked past me at the convenience store parking lot before entering the side street to cross Hwy 290. Please know that his passing was instant and he did not suffer. Again, I’m so very sorry for your loss…there are no words to describe my pain for you.

  2. Josh was one of my greatest and closest friends. Such a kind, warm person. He always made me laugh, was always there for me and never got tired of hearing my problems. He was a real true friend, and everyone can agree. He was one of those guys that’s friends with everybody and doesn’t judge or have enemies. When I saw my friends posting about his death I immediately called him and it went straight to voicemail. My heart sunk. I’ll miss and love him forever.

    1. Me and my husband were on the scene when this happened. I would like to send flowers. Do you have any idea of where the funeral will be?

      1. His uncle is Kevin White from Mineola on FB- you may want to friend him and ask. His parents live in Corpus so I’m guessing funeral will be there.
