Such a sweet young man. I knew Josh through my son Teddy from their Whitewater HS days. I remember him swimming and gaming at our house and enjoying food, fun and laughs with friends. As a mom, this warmed my heart that Josh was part of my son’s life. I also recall hearing how Josh was a babe magnet. Miss you dear Josh and much love and strength to all your family.
Jeanine Duke says

Coach Kent says
I had the honor of coaching Josh in little league baseball and rec football in Brooks. He was a one of the most happy go lucky kids I ever had the chance to meet. He would give 1000 precent to whatever you asked him to do whether he like doing it or not and always with that smile on his face. Jim you guys did a great job with your kids, especially Josh very well mannered and kind hearted. You will be missed young man.
Beth Windon says
Josh was a close friend of my son. Zach was devastated to hear the news of Josh’s passing and will miss him greatly. My prayers are with Josh’s family who have had a lot of heartache over the last year and a half. May God bless you and bring you comfort and peace. Eternal rest grant unto Josh, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Josh was a wonderful dear friend to my daughter, Rachel, since middle school. Josh and Rachel had many great times together- from concerts he so kindly drove her to in Atlanta to Spring Break in New York when he went to visit her at school plus many other regular days as friends hanging out together. I remember Josh as a kind, compassionate young man who cared deeply for those he loved. I am so sorry for the loss of Josh and I send my prayers and condolences to his family and friends! Josh touched so many lives and will always be remembered! Josh you are missed and loved!
Spencer Elsholz says
I honestly did not know Josh the best, but I saw him often with my close-knit group of friends. We had classes together. We learned and laughed together. We hung out several times at my house during high school. We were more recently fellow groomsmen together for one of our most dearest friend’s wedding.
There isn’t anyone who had anything bad to say about Josh Maslak. He was a wonderful, bright person, as everyone who knew him can confirm. He was a kind and generous friend, and a gentle, polite, exemplary man. My heart goes out to his family, and to everyone who knew him. May his soul rest in peace.

Maria Vigil says
Josh was a wonderful young man and such a great person. It was a privilege to know Josh through baseball and in high school when he played with my son and was a great friend to so many. It was always such a pleasure to see Josh at Due South when I would go there with my business group. He was also so polite and pleasant. I know his father and mother were proud. The world has lost a good one. Prayers for all the family in this time of loss.
Laura Lacko Penatzer says
Many heartfelt prayers for all who knew Josh. I unfortunately did not know him, but his mother Brenda I knew from my younger years. She was a beautiful and kind sole, just as I can see Josh was as I read all of the beautiful shared memories, and I can see Josh will be surely missed…..take care and Stay Strong! 💕
Polo Vargas says
I had the pleasure of knowing Josh since we were in middle school. I had many classes with him throughout middle and high school. His sense of humor always made my day. May he rest in peace. Sending prayers to his family and loved ones.
Kris Stolz says
drove past Due South and looked up and wonder if Josh was still working there a few minutes later Jim called and told me of Josh’s passing and my heart just fell. I’ve knowing Brenda a long time and we would go out and she would always talk about Jim and the boys they were the love of her life. It’s hard to understand why these things happen. But knowing Josh and Brenda and little charlie they are having the best reunion being together again. My heart goes out to Jim to lose his wife and son and to Jake to lose a Mom and brother. Just knowing that you have wonderful memories of them. Jim if you ever need anything I’m just around the corner.
I didn’t know him as much as I would have liked to but I went to school with him and talked occasionally. He was always so kind and one brilliant guy. I wish those closer to him wellness and comfort in getting through such a terrible tragedy.
Dave and Donna Johnston says
We were shocked and saddened upon learning about Josh’s passing. We only met Josh once or twice , and regret that we didn’t keep in touch more with Brenda and Jim over the years. Our prayers and condolences are with Jim and his family.
Barb Maslak Garofalo says
Words cannot express how much my nephew, Josh, meant to me and to his Grammy Jane. He was an extraordinary young man, who had already brought blessings to so many in his life. Just imagine what great things he would have achieved! His spirit and intellect were so strong that he excelled at anything he tried. God bless him now as he blessed us in life. All our love to Jim and Jake. ❤️
Renee & Bob Brett says
Sending love & prayers on this most difficult day. Words can’t express our sadness. Know that you will be in our thoughts. May the loving kindness of friends and family help you get through.
