He was always fun to be around and a gathering of his friends or a party wasn't the same without him. Joshua's best friend Julia Shaffer said he was the best friend you could ever ask for. He was dedicated to his friends, had a huge heart, and would do anything for them. “Toes” was also a very determined individual that once he set his mind to do something, he did it. He was also a very talented basketball player and he liked to box. Josh's love for his mother and for his pet dog, Egor was unconditional. He was a very thoughtful, caring and respectful person that will truly be missed by all his family and his large circle of friends. His absence will create a void that will be filled by the memory of his smiling face and the bond of his dedicated friendship. Joshua was predeceased by his grandfather, William Nelson; his aunt Deborah Nelson. He is survived by his mother, Christine Nelson of Springwater; his grandmother, Rosemarie Nelson of Avoca; his uncle, Thomas Nelson of Springwater; his aunt Patricia Chapman of Hornell; his best friend, Julia Shaffer; and a special friend Jernee Smalt and many other friends.
