MARCH 21, 1999 – JUNE 26, 2022


 With our deepest and unexpected regrets, we announce with the heaviest of hearts that JOSHUA RAYMOND COTTRELLE has passed away.  On Sunday June 26th, 2022; suddenly but peacefully at the tender, far too young age of 23. Beloved son to Mother Robyn Blackburn and Father the late Jay Cottrelle (2007). Step-son to the late Justin Denton (2017), Patrick McNerney and Kelly Homewood; and beloved Grandson of Patricia Marsh, Gina George, and Raymond Blackburn. Nephew of Trisha Blackburn, Sheldon Gordon, Mario Vitorino and Nick (Ugga) Cottrelle.  Beloved cousins of Julius and Christian Vitorino and step-brothers to Jordan LaFramboise and Tyler White.  Life time best friends of Diane Hall, Ruth Conboy and Karyn Crew. 

 There are too many people’s names that deserve mentioning here whose lives Josh had touched and who had touched Josh's life; but we are confident that each and every one of you knows who you are.

 Josh is finally happy at home in Jehovah God's loving care.  Forever remembered and eternally loved by all who were blessed to have known him.  May his travels be safe and eternity blessed.
