Josh was an avid technophile, interested in the latest gadgets and innovations. A lifelong Mets fan like his father, Josh attended New York Mets games every year with his sister Becky and friends. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, passing on his video game skills to his great uncle, sisters and then nephews, watching movies (all things Star Wars, Marvel, Star Trek and most importantly, exciting), sharing TV show recommendations, taking scenic drives and playing with any nearby cats. He was happiest in warm weather, enjoying time in Florida, California, Cape Cod in the summer, the Caribbean and anywhere sunny.
