Joshua David McKay Joshua passed away August 2, 2018 in Tacoma at the age of 35, and is now in the loving arms his Heavenly Father. He was born in Tacoma, Washington on September 3, 1982 to Larry and Julie McKay and was the youngest of 5 children. He graduated from Curtis High School in 2001, and earned a bachelor's degree in English Literature from Evergreen State University. Joshua was a talented musician and a prolific writer of songs, poetry, and stories. He had a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious smile. His best friend was his cat, Mr. Munson. His impersonation of English characters was beyond hilarious, and he was very happy reading to his little nieces and nephew at Christmas time. Joshua became involved in BMX racing as a pre-teen. He loved the Northwest and made many hiking trips deep into Olympic National Park with his family. He was a voracious reader, particularly of 19th century poets, and loved to give his opinion on 19th century history, music, and politics to engage others good luck with that! He read the Bible straight through as a teenager and became a Jesus lover. He is missed beyond measure by his family and friends; we know he's happy and free now. He is survived by his parents Larry and Julie; siblings Kevin (Mary Jo), David (Sandy), Kristina (Jimmy Ringrose), and big brother Chad; nieces Dawna, Jennifer, Samantha, Lucia, and Ellie; nephew Nicholas P.; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. No words can express the love sent out from others for Joshua. A celebration of Joshua's life will be held at The Titlow Lodge, 8425 6th Ave, Tacoma, Washington, at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 26, 2018. Guest book at
