Joshua Paul Smith • July 18, 2015

Joshua Paul Smith, age 39, passed away unexpectedly Saturday morning, July 18, 2015. Joshua, born in Memphis, TN, lived most of his life in the Central Florida area where he attended Greenwood Lakes Middle School, Lake Mary High School and Full Sail University. Joshua had a deep love and talent for music, writing, mixed martial arts, cooking and natural medicine. He loved animals and nature and was very artistic. Josh was an avid reader and loved to engage in discussions about the Bible and spiritual things. His family and many friends knew him to be quick-witted, kind, creative, intelligent and funny. Accepting people as they were, Josh made friends easily and could often be found someplace engaged in an interesting conversation. His sorrowful passing, though a tremendous loss to those who knew and loved him, is buffered by the reality of the “Blessed Hope” he had in Christ.

Joshua is survived by his parents, Dennis and Linda (Kelly) Smith, and sisters, Alison Alombro and Jessica Springer, all who deeply love him. He is also survived by two brothers-in-law, August Alombro and Charles Springer, nephew “AJ” Alombro, his cherished dog Dexter, Grandmother Nancy Joyce Aliperti, Uncle Neil McCullough, and many other beloved aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home, 7433 Pine Forest Road, is entrusted with arrangements. Visitation will be held Friday, July 24, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m., at Pensacola Memorial Gardens. The funeral service will follow immediately after, with Pastor John Paul Holmes officiating.

Joshua’s funeral service will be web-casted on-demand live. Anyone who is unable to share this day with us in attendance may contact the family directly for information on viewing the service live online.
