It is with deep sadness we announce the loss of our son, brother, uncle, grandson and friend, Joshua James Grigg.

Josh was born in Monroe and grew up in Sultan. He graduated from Sultan High School in 2002 after attending all 12 years in Sultan school district.

Throughout his school years he played basketball, baseball and football. He loved all sports, but football was his biggest passion. After high school he went on to play college football at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana.

Josh was an avid Seahawks fan and season ticket holder. He loved attending professional sporting events. The Seahawks, Sonics, and Mariners were among his favorites.

In recent years he started his own business, Done Right Renovations. He took great pride in his work.

Josh always lived life to the fullest. He had a big heart for helping others. Anyone who knew Josh will never forget his great sense of humor and beautiful smile.

Josh is survived by his mother, Michelle (Ira) Vincent, father, Wesley (Joanna) Grigg, sister, Cassandra (Dan) O'Connell, and his nephew, Leland O'Connell. Also survived by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and the many, many friends that he greatly valued.

While we will miss your smile, passion and quick wit
Be assured that you left a legacy that has enriched others

The adversity you experienced coupled with true grit to overcome
Can have a positive effect on those you included in your tapestry of life

Let us not judge you for we do not know the pain you felt
But rather let us learn from your pain and story that makes you unique

Rest assured Josh, that you gave so much to others
Through your humor, sincerity, unselfishness and dogged determination

If we can gain strength through your unwritten messages and response to adversity
Then your legacy will continue to live in the hearts of those you touched

I met Josh back in 2006 when he literally wrecked into my van in his driveway. This sparked off a great friendship for so many years . We would often go to football games and I took on his costume as a Seapimp.. He later helped me put together a RV that was Seahawked out for tail gating and boy did we have some amazing times in that ride ..
Our trip to Texas to watch the Seahawks play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving will forever be my best memory together as we felt like rock stars.. I will forever miss his laugh and can hear him still saying wud up homie!
I love you Josh and keep my seat warm until I get there !

I became friends with Josh 20 years ago. He became one of my best friends.
He saved me, he truly did.
When i lost my father i barely new josh.
I had met him before but never hung out wuth him that much..
I can't tell you why, other than the fact it was just in his nature to help people when they were hurting or in pain.
He new what i was going thru and he never left me alone. He would show up even after i told him to leave me be, He never took no for an answer. He was there for me in one of my lowest times,and i had just met him.
He would bring me bags of food.
Josh drug me out of a dark place and i will forever be grateful for him.
I have tons of fun stories as well, but this is why Josh is so important to me and always will be.. I will forever remember you my dear friend..
You will always be family to me.. RiP

Not too long ago you reached out to me and we had the longest chat. You were so proud of yourself, you had come so far. I am so sorry I didn't keep checking on you.
