Joshua Borst

  • Age: 16
  • Ellsworth, WI
  • Ellsworth Sr.High

There are so many ways to describe you: a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin and a friend. Someone who was loved by so many. You were a 16year old boy who was so full of life, love and happiness. YOu had a heart of gold and a smile that could light up a room. You were willing to do just about anything.. for anyone.. anytime. He wasn’t hesitant about showing his affection for others. With Josh it didn’t matter where he was or who he was with he always said “I love you, Mom” before hanging up the phone. Our hearts were broken the day you were taken away from us. You were so young and left us way too soon. Overwhelmed with grief and sadness we take comfort in the many amazing memories you left behind. Anyone that knows Josh knows that he was full of energy, took life seriously, was always in a hurry and worried about everything. Things that may have seemed small to you or I were a HUGE deal to him. It seems he spend a majority of his life “a nervous wreck” From the time Joshua was a little guy until the very end of his life, you never wanted to tell him we were going to do anything unless you were absolutely positive it was going to happen! otherwise he would keep asking about it. Patience wasn’t his best quality. His mother and many others quickly learned not to say anything. Joshua took a huge piece of our hearts when he left, although we are blessed with 16 years of memories that I will have forever. You had a great sense of humor.. you loved to joke around and playfully tease. Little kids adored you. It wasn’t uncommon to find a kid on your back, one of your shoulders and one hanging off each leg. Josh recently got his first job at the Ellsworth Care Center…something he was so proud of. The day of Josh’s interview he was super excited and naturally very nervous. He tried on at least four different shirts, wanting to look his best. Repeatedly asking what he should say and how he should act. When he found out he got the job I believe he notified everyone in the family within 20 minutes! Joshua was tall and super thin…how he remained so thin is a mysterious because the kid was constantly filling his face. He loved anything sweet….especially Dr. pepper and chocolate. Josh was an avid sports fan…he closely followed the Packers, Badgers, and Brewers. It didn’t matter where you were but as long as Josh was with you he always found a way to get the scores and the winners.
