Joshua S. Price

JOHNSTOWN — PRICE – Joshua S., 29, Johnstown, died Feb. 6, 2013, at Memorial Medical Center. Born March 8, 1983, in Johnstown, son of Donald Scott Price and Suzanne Marie (Shaw) Baumgardner. Preceded in death by paternal grandmother, Donna A. Wilson. Survived by parents; children, Nevaeh A. Price; twin sister, Jacqueline A. (Price) Patterson; nieces, Lexus J. Taczanowsky and Caia G. Patterson; maternal grandparents, Jack B. Shaw and Grace A. (Lasure) Shaw; paternal grandparent, Darell E. Wilson; aunts and uncles, John B. Shaw, Stacie M. Shaw, Matthew M. Shaw, Lynn A. Price, and his closest aunt who preceded him in death, Sarah Grace Shaw; and various cousins, including Janica S. Shaw, Cassandra D. Shaw, Brittanie M. Stull, Braeden M. Stull, Chaya M. Simms, Jordan W. Shaw, Kyleigh E. Moody; also his faithful companion, Nezshia. He attended Richland High School and Penn Highlands Community College. He also attended services at Faith Chapel Baptist Church, with Gordan Egolf, and his deceased paternal great-grandmother, Alfreda Egolf. Josh enjoyed fishing and camping with his uncle, Matt. Josh was a man of great strength and courage. A true man that feared only God himself. Memorial service will be for the family only. “We will certainly died and be like water poured upon the ground, which can’t be recovered. But God would not take away a life; He would devise plans so that the one banished from Him does not remain banished.” 2 Samuel 14:14. Josh, I guess God needed you more than me. I can’t described the pain I feel; it’s as if I can’t breathe. Our childhood wasn’t always perfect but having you by my side made me feel complete. Josh, day by day, I think of you. How can all of this be true? I can’t believe you are really gone. I still can’t accept it. Just the thought of you makes me cry, but may your spirit soar in freedom from the fears that gripped you so tight. May you find the peace you searched for as you wondered lost in the night. My other half of me just disappeared. Darkness came as fast as you got your angel wings. I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I’m always missing you. Memories running through my head, not believing my only brother’s life is gone. God, please take this pain away from me. I never got to say good-bye. Then it’s as if you reached out and spoke to me saying, “Jackie, be strong, wipe your eyes.” I love you my twin brother; you will always be my best friend, you sister, Jackie.
