Joshua Kyle Wooldridge

October 1, 1985 ~ October 31, 2018 (age 33)

Joshua Kyle Wooldridge was born October 1, 1985, to Steven and Sharon (Vos) Wooldridge, in Pella, Iowa.  Josh died in a farming related accident, on the family farm, doing what he loved, on October 31, 2018.

Josh attended Peoria Christian School, was a 2004 graduate of Pella Christian High School and a 2006 graduate of Muscatine Community College.   Josh was a farmer who loved the Lord Jesus Christ and nature.  He enjoyed attending farm auctions, antique machinery shows, and collecting antique Oliver tractors, raising cattle, grain hauling, and machinery hauling for other farmers. He was a kind, compassionate Christian man who would help anyone. Josh was a member of the Sully Community Church where he was a helper for AWANA’s, ran the sound system, and loved singing in the praise team and attending church and fellow-shipping with other believers.

Those left to cherish his memory are his parents, Steve and Sharon of Peoria, Iowa, his sister Bethany and husband Jon Van Waardhuizen, and their daughter Aria of Sarasota, Florida, and his brother Nathaniel Wooldridge of Peoria, Iowa.  He is also survived by his aunts and uncles:  Alvin and Joyce Vos of New York, Morris and Mary Elizabeth Vos of Illinois, David and Judi Vos of North Carolina, Diane Wooldridge of Oskaloosa, Iowa, and James Wooldridge of Colorado, along with numerous cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Peter G. and Edith Vos, and Ralph and Emmajean Wooldridge; and his aunt Donna Wooldridge.

He will be greatly missed by family, friends and neighbors.
