Joshua was a prankster and loved picking on his children, he would constantly place tiny toy dragons and ninjas through-out the home and would inform his children that they had new guardians in the house. He would further tease his children by rearranging furniture or having gotten some new and easily noticed item in the house while they were at school and telling them that they had blinked. He liked to play lots of idle and strategy games on his phone and computer while listening to LITRPG audiobooks, along with spending quality time with his children playing video games like Minecraft and Halo, teaching them how to cook different recipes and had been teaching his oldest son to play Magic: the Gathering. He also enjoyed playing Ark: Survival Evolved with his wife while watching anime after his children had gone to bed.
He is survived by his wife Zerriana Evangeline Josette; his five going on six children, Donovan Kade, Rayna Sarai, Aria Rose, Zelda Tamera, Theodonis Lyle Rhys and soon Lachlain Wayne; his five siblings, James Wayne, Teressia Lynne, Steven Wayne Jr., Angela Carol, Freedom Ann and their spouses respectfully; nine nieces; four nephews; 18 great-nieces & nephews and numerous cousins.
