The son of Chad and Sue (Barkema) Cox, Josh was born on August 9, 1994 in Waterloo, Iowa. He graduated from PCM High School in 2013 and earned an Associate's degree from DMACC. Josh was very proud of the fact he maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher through High School and college. He was also a member of the Prairie City Church of the Brethren.

Those left to honor his memory include his parents, Chad and Sue; a sister, Megan Cox, a brother, Jacob Cox; grandparents, Pamela Cox, Jessie Sage and Don Sage; great grandmother Viola Barkema; aunts and uncles, Kim (Allan) Hoy, Sherry (Randy) Elmore, Terisa (Bob) Schlueter, Brandon Cox, Richard Barkema and Randy (Allyson) Sage, as well as many other family members and friends. Preceding Josh in death were grandfather LaMont Cox, grandfather Dwight Barkema; great grandparents, Bill and Pat Haacke, Spencer and Marge Cox; great grandfather Junior Barkema; great grandmother Marie Gruis along with other loving relatives who have passed.

Joshua was registered as an Organ Donor, however, due to the measures taken to try and save his life, sadly, he didn't have the chance to do so.

Sue & family, I was so sorry to hear about the horrible accident. Josh was in PC Elem. when I was the secretary. I'm sorry I could not attend the funeral but you are in my thoughts & prayers at this very sad time. Eleanor Sturtz

CandleI just want to say I am so sorry for this unfortunate tragedy that ended Joshua's life. I did not know Josh. I am a friend of Austins family. I just want you all to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. This was such a tragic loss for both families and again I am so very sorry! I can not imagine the pain you are in. And even though Josh was not able to donate his organs it was in his heart to do so and that is amazing in my book. Gods peace to you all!

I knew Joshua as Coxy. My grandson Austin loved this young man. Coxy had a laugh that was infectious. My sincere condolences to his family.
Love,
Luann Kline (Austin Gainuss' grandmother)

Sorry to hear of Joshuas untimely passing. I send prayers to his family. I went to high school with his grandpa and grandma and graduated with his great aunt Rita.

I was Josh’s lunch lady. I always thought he was a nice, kind kid. Always polite. Sorry for your loss. Prayers to your family.
