Dear Kim, Tony, and the rest of the family,
Words cannot express how we felt and are stilling feeling about Josh and Easton’s passing. We have two daughters and if we would have had a son, we would have wished he could have been like Josh. Josh did most of my grain harvesting and it was a joy riding around with him and talking about life, farming, and family. He will be sorely missed. Jennifer, Payton, and you all continue to be in our prayers.
Love, Steve and Cathy Chamberlain

Jennifer Thrush - Feb 28, 2014

I am so deeply sadden by the loss of such a caring and gentle man and his beautiful son. While I have not seen Josh since I graduated from Fairbanks 14 years ago, the first thought that came to my mind when I saw the tragic news was how kind, compassionate, and selfless Josh had always been-even as a teenager. My heart is filled with sadness and I send my sincere condolences to your family. My prayers and thoughts.
Jennifer Thrush, friend from Fairbanks High School
