Joshua Brendon Stores, 44, passed away on January 27, 2019. Josh was a lifelong North Idaho resident. He enjoyed many hobbies including fishing, hunting, football, woodworking, and overall being outdoors. Above all else, his true passion was his family, friends, and his God, Jehovah.
Josh married Lindsay on August 12, 1994 and in October of 2003, they welcomed their only child, Hannah. Josh’s health dramatically declined about eight years ago when he started his battle with pancreatitis. His attitude and his great personality hid the tremendous suffering that he endured. He knew that this was all temporary and looked forward to a future of perfect health. He had a strong faith in the promise found in John 5:28.
Josh worked the majority of his life in the drywall construction field where he developed many close relationships that remained strong even after he was unable to work. Josh has left a hole in the hearts of many.
Josh was preceded in death by his father, Jim Stores. He is survived by Lindsay, his wife of 24 years, Hannah, his 15 year old daughter, mother Betty Steiner, step father Stan Steiner, his 99 year old grandfather Arthur Steiner, siblings Jeremy Stores and wife Jaime, Rhonda Childers and husband Ron, and Eric Steiner and wife Mandy, many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and many cousins including Lena and Aaron Gauger and Sterling Smith, his brother at heart. Josh enriched the lives of many.
A memorial will be held at a later date.
