Josh was born in Clifton, Texas on May 11, 1983, to Dayle and Gayla Squyres. He was led in his faith and was baptized and confirmed at the St. John Lutheran Church in Hamilton. Josh grew up in Jonesboro and graduated from Jonesboro High School in 2001. Josh loved to help on the family farm and spend time with his family. He dated Elisha Wolff in high school, but they parted ways for a bit and Josh attended T.S.T.C., where he obtained an associate degree. God brought Josh and Elisha back together in 2011 and on August 17, 2013, they were married and Josh gained a son, Carson. In 2016 they welcomed their little girl, Kinzlee and completed their family.
Josh worked as a manager at Attic Breeze in Gatesville for many years. This past spring, Josh and Elisha bought a house and settled in Jonesboro. Josh was in the process of remodeling their home, to make it just perfect for his family. He loved his family very much and making Elisha, Carson and Kinzlee smile, is what made Josh happy.
Josh is survived by his wife, Elisha; children, Carson and Kinzlee; parents, Dayle and Gayla Squyres; mother-in-law, Pam Wolff; brother, Justin Squyres and wife, Cynthia; brother-in-law, Brent Wolff and wife, Lori; nieces and nephews, Levi Martin, Maddie, Emma and Mason Squyres and Bailey and Jozie Wolff; special aunt, Shirley Sellers; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Josh is preceded in death by his grandparents, August and Maurine Braun; Clark and Ruth Squyres; and father-in-law Freddie Wolff.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made to the following organizations that Josh supported: Autism Awareness at aane.org; National MS Society for Multiple Sclerosis at nationalmssociety.org; or a fund for the family has been set up at the Mills County Bank of Hamilton, Texas, under Elisha Squyres Benefit Fund.
