In Loving Memory of Joshua Holmes: 1975-2023


Joshua Anders Holmes left his earthly body on the morning of May 3, 2023, peacefully at home, in the arms of his wife and daughters. 

At the young age of 46, Josh was diagnosed with stage four cancer. He battled this awful disease like a true warrior, doing anything and everything he possibly could do to beat it. Through every gain and setback Josh lived each day with a positive optimistic attitude and never gave up. Josh leaves behind his wife of 26 years, the love of his life, Sarah; his three daughters Hailey (Ricky Alvarez), Madison (Kyler Osborne) and Sidney (Ethan Macfarland); son Jonah (Mariah Chacon); grandsons Owen and Kaycen; his parents Steven and Peggy Holmes, and Mark and Kathy Suessman; and brother Zach, along with many other family members and countless friends who loved and adored him. 

A celebration of life will be held at 4:30 p.m. at Crossroads Community Church on May 20, 2023, at 11520 Bald Hill Road SE in Yelm. The family requests that any flowers be sent to Crossroads Church.
