Joshua Noel De Anda, age 32 passed away Friday, October 14, 2022. He is survived by his loving father, Augustine Noe De Anda, his loving mother, Patricia Duran De Anda and his loving younger sister, Angelica Maria De Anda. His grandparents are Susana De Anda and Frank Ybarra and Maria and Manuel Duran. He had numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who fought for him and loved him for who he was. He was and always will be immensely treasured.
Josh was preceded in death by his grandfather Juan De Anda.
Josh grew up in the DFW/HEB area where he attended LD Bell High School. After graduating from high school, he attended New Mexico Military Institute where he completed an associate degree in Computer Science. He began working for FedEx Ground part-time. Not long after that, he found the job where he absolutely adored working. That was the produce section at Kroger grocery store. He made friends there and felt so happy and accepted by so many.
Before this, his biggest accomplishment had been becoming an entrepreneur. He created his own business called "Noe's Hot Sauce." He was so proud of his father's hot sauce and he enjoyed marketing it. Josh was so much more than his struggles. He loved his milk and cookies every day and spent countless hours journaling and drawing in his room. He loved to play on his Play Station while he journaled. Josh would do anything for his family. He always made sure his mother, father and sister were safe and healthy. There was nothing he wouldn't do for them. If he could have, he would have given them the world! Anyone that truly knew him, knew he had such a big heart and loved so hard. He could make you laugh even when you were angry with him. Joshua's smile and his determination to overcome obstacles will be greatly missed.
He loved fiercely and deeply, and we take comfort in knowing that Joshua is now at peace surrounded by light. He is no longer suffering and is now healed by our Lord God.
"You never said I'm leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knew why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God took you home." Author Unknown.
