Joshua Edward Givens was taken from us on March 3, 2019 in New Caney, Texas  after being hit by a drunk driver while walking home from a friends birthday party. If you knew Josh, you'd know that he rarely took life too seriously. His personality could brighten up the darkest room and his smile could turn anyone's day around. He was a terrific football player and had dreams of being an Accountant when he got older. 

Josh leaves behind a strong and caring woman who was not only his mom, but also his best friend, proudest supporter, and all around rock. Their last memory together was a duet to "Moment For Life" with these word to follow:

"You know we just had a moment, right?" - Mom

"Yeah, lets have another one." - Josh

I am his aunt Victoria Givens, and we are asking for $15,000 to cover the cost of a service, casket, burial, and all other funeral fees and expenses. All money will go to Joshua’s mother, Taisha. Any donation helps and is appreciated. 

The unbelievable love and support at this heartbreaking time is so encouraging.  Our hearts are crushed at his passing, but we can still continue to celebrate and memorialize how he impacted us through a support fund. 

Thank you in advance!

Love, 
The Givens Family

We want to take the time to thank every person who donated, sent food, cards, and flowers, called to check in, or stopped by to visit. Thank you to every one who came to Josh’s viewing and to his funeral. To witness the amount of people who loved Josh was absolutely incredible. The outpouring of love from our friends, family and community has been overwhelming in the best possible way. We never could have imagined we’d have this many people reaching out to comfort us during this tough time but knowing that so many people cared about Josh has made this ordeal a bit easier.

Special shout out to Freddy, Josh would have been ecstatic about having a taco named after him, even if it was only for a day.

Special Shout out to Rios family funeral home. They did an amazing job and made everything as easy as possible.

The football booster moms, for reaching out.

From the bottom of our hearts, we love and appreciate every one of you.

Thank you,
The Givens Family
