Josh was a true friend who bailed me out several times on service calls including the big one in which he and I stayed until 1:30 and 12:30 am on back to back nights and he went three more by himself. Josh is the only friend that would do this and when we got paid , he and his son pulled up in their car and I got to meet his son- what I saw was a loving and proud father! It really made Christmas special.We miss you Josh!

So sad to hear the loss of Josh. He will forever be remembered as one of the "MURRAY HILLS POOL" charter members. We all had so much fun as one big family at the pool..he was one of the "younger kids" that hung out with all of us teenagers, even on the rainy days....He was one of those kids that loved to be thrown from one end of the pool to the other by the older guys and dads. He had such a sweet smile that I will always remember. My thoughts and prayers are with the family thru this difficult time.
