His real passion was rap music; he wrote several pieces and loved performing. Put a microphone in Josh’s hand and you could see the joy it brought him. He also enjoyed skateboarding, jogging, free running, lifting weights, tricking and working on cars.

Josh will be greatly missed by his father, Dale Hruza, of Conger; his mother, Gina Miller, of Albert Lea; brother, Matt Hruza, of Albert Lea; grandparents Ida Hruza of Conger and Paul and JoAnn Miller of Albert Lea; aunts and uncles Jerry Miller of St. Paul, Don and Lori Hruza of Oahu, Hawaii, Randy and Diane (Hruza) Andrews of Rochester, Debby LaCore and special friend, Paul Kohman, of Rochester; and many cousins, great-aunts and uncles and a host of friends.

Josh was preceded in death by his baby brother, William; grandfather, Frank Hruza; and his great-grandparents.

Josh’s zest for life and ability to light up a room will always be remembered.
