It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Joshua de Silva on January 4, 2024. He is mourned by his parents’ sister and husband, grandmother, and extended family across Canada.
Too young, too soon, never to be forgotten; he was deeply loved and sorely missed. Dearest son, may you be at peace.
Linda, I didn’t know Joshua but my deepest condolences to you and your family. Loosing a loved one is hard but so much more when they are so young. My prayers are with you. Sharon Hildebrandt
Joshua, may you find everlasting peace and know that you’re loved and missed. I know that I’ll never look at a whoopie cushion the same again.(you know). May God hold you tight until we all meet in heaven. Peace young man.
My heart breaks for you, Linda, the rest of your family, Josh's friends, and all who were lucky enough to know him. I had the pleasure of knowing Josh for 2 years. Out of all the people I worked with, he was my favorite. I especially appreciated his sense of humor, kindness, and optimism. He always treated people respectfully and gave others the benefit of the doubt. Working with Josh not only influenced the way I interacted with others but also shaped my career path. For this, I will always be thankful to him; he touched my life then and continues to do so now. Thank you, Josh. I won't forget you!
My heart goes out to all that loved Josh! I’m so deeply sorry for your loss Linda, family and friends! I hope wonderful memories of him give you comfort as you heal.
I played in a DnD campaign run by Josh that took place in the golden age of Greek mythology. He had a wonderfully creative mind and an easy cheerful laugh. His interest in history really brought the world to life and his powerful personal faith was something to be admired. Such a happy young man should not have been taken from this world so soon.
