Joshua Laurel Dube of Milbridge, born on June 19, 1998, to Jeffrey and Kimberly (Shaw) Dube in Presque Isle, died tragically on Jan. 4, 2019.
Joshua was a beautiful young man with an infectious laugh and smile; he had many hopes and dreams for the future. He had a passion for animals, loved four-wheeling with his twin brother Jake. Joshua suffered from severe anxiety, so he looked forward to just hanging out with his two best friends, Dad and Jake. He also enjoyed joking around with big brother Andrew, playing on Xbox with him. But Mom was his biggest fan and supporter. He had so much life to live and was taken too soon.
He is survived by his parents, Jeffery and Kimberly Dube of Milbridge, brothers Andrew and Jacob Dube and fiancée Darian Goston of Milbridge. Uncles Jeffrey and wife, Cindy Shaw, of Arizona, Greg and wife, Theresa Shaw, of Presque Isle, Mike and Karen Dube from Augusta, Aunts Janet and husband, Robert Fitzmaurice, of Washburn, Michelle and husband, Aaron Libby, of Caribou, Grandmother Loretta Dube of Cherryfield and many cousins who loved him very much, and the two loves of his life, Briana Lunt and dog Milo.
He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents Nana and Papa Shaw, paternal Grampy Dube and aunt Roberta Dube.
There will be a memorial service for him at the Faith Bible Fellowship Church on the Back Bay Road in Milbridge on Jan. 19 at 1 p.m. and a small gathering for refreshments afterward. Please feel free to share your stories with us. I want to say thank you to the very special community I live in for being so supportive, especially my family at Milbridge Medical Center.
Arrangements are under the direction and care of Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home, Milbridge.
