Joshua Brownell’s Memorial Fund

On Thursday March 22nd around 9:00 a.m. my brother-in-law Joshua Brownell was driving just a few minutes from home to an auto parts store, when around a curved road another driver crossed into his lane and hit him head on, Josh died instantly from the impact. This devastating moment has changed our families lives forever.

Josh was only 33 years old and had so much to live for, he was an amazing man with many interests such as dog breeding, tropical fish and coral reefs, off-roading, horticulture and cars. He was a former MMA fighter and was a tattoo and dog breeding champion. Josh worked as a heavy equipment operator with Local 12 Operating Engineers for 12 years.

Josh’s true loves were my sister Malea and their daughter Marilyn Rose. He lived for them and they were his world, his eyes lit up when they walked into a room. Marilyn was his pride and joy, she’s always been a daddy’s girl and even got his dimples.

A Celebration of Life will be held Friday April 6th at 11:30 a.m. at Rancho Community Church in Temecula, Ca.

This memorial fund in Joshua’s honor is setup to help Malea with expenses and the raising of their daughter Marilyn Rose.

Thank you for reading and donating to Marilyn and Malea. Please leave a comment if you have memories of Joshua to share so that Marilyn can read this as she gets older to help keep his memory alive.
