Joshua Bradley Few, age 33, born May 9, 1985 in Dayton, Ohio, with deepest sorrow, we announce that our beloved son, brother, family member and friend, passed away suddenly Friday, December 14, 2018.
He was a believer in Christ and a member of Phillips Temple CME Church. Joshua attended Oakwood High School and continued to pursue his education by attending the University of Toledo before moving to Chicago to fulfill his lifelong passion for cooking by studying at Kendall College of Culinary Arts. Joshua loved to laugh and had a smile that could light up a room. He was an expert chef who got so much joy from creating delicious dishes at a moment’s notice for family and friends. From the time he was a young boy, Joshua enjoyed music, movies, friends and sports…especially fantasy football supporting his favorite team, the Chicago Bears. He really loved to share his passions with others and brought so much love and joy to those around him. He was a sweet, kind-hearted boy who grew to a wonderfully strong and humorous young man. No matter what the challenge, Joshua continued to push forward and reminded us that he loved us in spite of it all.
Joshua is survived by his parents, Desiree Dickinson and David L. Few, Jr.; step-father, Nathan Anderson; step-mother, Penny Few; sisters, Kellie (Few) Pean, Desja Few, Lauren Few, Alexandria Anderson; brother, Anthony Anderson; brother-in-law, Shawn Pean; nieces, Olivia Pean and Nora Wittmer; nephews, Shawn M. Pean and Brayden Wittmer; grandfather, David L. Few Sr.; grandmothers, Joan C. Few and Patricia B. Matthews; a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Those who knew Joshua, even just a little lost a shining light in their lives. We take comfort knowing that he is without pain and is now at rest in God’s arms.
Joshua’s family extends their heartfelt thanks for all of the love, support, outreach and prayers people have offered.
