Family Fund in Memory of Josiah Black

It is with a heavy heart that I write, on Monday, June 15th, 2020 Josiah Black passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving behind a loving wife and sweet 16 month old daughter with another little boy or girl on the way. 

Josiah was loved and remembered by many as being a caring, loving father, husband, brother, son and friend to everyone who he came across. During Josiah's final days he loved spending time outdoors, gardening, reflecting on the word of God, playing with his family, working on his classic VW Westfalia vans and writing through many different facets. His strong sense of leadership, caring and genuine nature, strong will and quick witted jokes will be missed dearly by many. During Josiah's life he pursued a successful career in acting and stand up comedy which brought him all over North America, from Vancouver BC to LA to Toronto as well as many other places in between. He loved traveling in his VW vans with his wife Alicia where they spent years together living freely and adventurously and shared stories of helping many people along the way.  

The purpose of this fundraiser is to offer support, show love and offer encouragement to Josiah's wife, baby, and baby on the way during this difficult and uncertain time.  All of the funds dedicated in his name through this page will be offered directly to his family to help them with living expenses in the coming days, weeks, months and years. It's my hope that they will be able to afford a safe home near to family if needed and have enough to put into a college fund for his kids. 

We welcome anyone and everyone to donate, and if you had the pleasure of knowing Josiah, please feel free to leave a note on how he touched your life or a memory you may have of you together. 

Thank you so much for your support, caring love and generosity. 

God Bless
