No fuss, no drama, and infinitely ready with that laugh. He seemed to exude an untroubled contentment with life and with whatever life handed him. A true friend to Old Chicago and founding member of Springs Beer Fest.  Josh passed in 2012 from a short fight with cancer. We all benefit from the legacy of Josh’s great energy and spirit.
