Obituary of Joshua Martin
Joshua Meador Martin, of Moneta rode his last wheelie on earth into Heaven on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. He was born on January 1, 1986 in Lynchburg, the son of Barry Martin & Faye Meador Martin of Moneta.
Josh loved to ride his bikes and Mustang. Now he can ride as fast as he wants in Heaven. God made room for Josh so he could join his "Pops" Billy Meador and Jas Martin and special cousin, Brian Kendrick.
Josh graduated from Staunton River High School and WY0 Tech Institute. He loved his job as a fabricating specialist at Sonny's Automotive Racing in Lynchburg and was employed there for thirteen years. He loved his animal friends, Bo & Jax and Sissie, the cat.
Josh will be sorely missed by his mom & dad, his "Nanny" Lorraine Meador and Edna Walker, Aunt Jean & Rick Gramling, Aunt Kaye & Bob Key,and Aunt Emily Meador. He leaves behind cousins, Anita, Justin & Tucker and many friends.
Josh had a big heart, but the pain took it away. He has no pain now. "Fly High". Love you always.
The family will receive friends beginning at 2 PM on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at Epworth United Methodist Church and a funeral service will follow at 3 PM with Rev. Kelvin Edwards officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.
