He was always willing to lend a helping hand and was always looking to brighten someone’s day or make them laugh or smile. He was a cherished and beloved Son, Grandson, Brother, Nephew, Uncle, Cousin and Friend. Josh is survived by parents Donna Castro of Keizer and Richard Barney of Chiloquin, OR.
