Obituary of Joshua White
Joshua Tyrone White
December 14, 1984 - September 17, 2022
It is with great sadness that the family of Joshua White announce his sudden passing on September 17, 2022 in Prince Albert, SK at the age of 37 years.
Joshua was born on December 14, 1984 in Prince Albert, SK to James and Milly White. He grew up enjoying singing and strumming the guitar and playing with his big sister Lindsay. Josh had a wonderful bass voice and had a little garage band in his teens, two songs that Josh loved to preform were “What a Wonderful world” by Louis Armstrong, and Break on through to the other side, by The Doors. Any moment Josh had he loved to visit with aunt Myrna and uncle Gary at their farm near Watson, exploring the woods, driving the machinery with his cousins Blaine and Erin. He also enjoyed travelling to British Columbia to see his aunties and cousins.
In 2010 Josh’s world changed and he had a precious little girl Casey, she was his pride and joy. He spent his career as a sheet metal worker and managed a fast-food restaurant. Josh loved animals, especially his dogs, most recently Willie- Nelson Mandela White.
In recent years he became very ill and spent months in hospital recovering.
Through the benefit of the internet three years ago Josh met his true soul mate MJ from the Philippines and began a new chapter of his life. Even though things did not move as quickly as they planned he and MJ began their lives at a distance and made vigorous plans to wed and have a family together here in Canada. With COVID occurring and the World shutting down, they stayed true to one another keeping in contact every day, and finally being able to marry on July 12, 2022. After one entire month together, Josh returned to Canada to begin the process of paperwork and getting home ready for MJ to arrive. This was to be the beginning of their love story, but sadly he fell into a coma and passed away before their dreams could be achieved together.
He was a friend to many and loved with his whole heart.
Josh is predeceased by his father Jim White.
Joshua memory will be forever cherished by: his mother Milly White; wife MJ White; daughter Casey Lynn White; stepson Xavier Cook; stepdaughter Princess Bam. Bedano; sister Lindsay (Joel) Rinas; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives and friends.
A special thank you to Victoria Hospital ICU staff.
