Josh was a cherished member of the Anchor Academy community in Middleboro, where he was an honor roll student. Josh also attended The Bridge Center in Bridgewater during the summers and school vacations, where he most enjoyed archery, swimming, and caring for animals.
 
Josh loved playing video games with his friends. His most recent hobby was coin collecting where he acquired some unique, rare coins from friends and family. Josh had a love of classic rock, and enjoyed spending time with his “Auntie T” going out for weekend lunch  dates to various local restaurants.
  
He is survived by his loving parents Chad and David Michael, grandparents Ruth “Mémère” and Bill “Pépère” LaBonté of Bridgewater, Paula “Grammy” and Steve “Grampy” Kravetz of Randolph, Uncle Bill Jr. and his wife Kara, cousins Allyson and Matthew LaBonté of Bridgewater, Aunt TJ LaBonté of Bridgewater, and cousins Talia and Tessa Governanti of Bristol, NH.

Josh was preceded in death by his Great Grandparents Mary & John “Jack” Williamson, of Brockton, Mary & Hervey “HL” LaBonte, of Brockton, Jeanne & Louis Budd, of Brockton, and Harriet & Samuel “Grampa Sam” Kravetz originally of Hull. He is also predeceased by his cousin Emily Paige LaBonté, of Bridgewater.

Dear Michael Family,

I am heartbroken with this news. Joshua was full of love and all things silly and wonderful. I have thought of you all often and think of you even more now. When I think of Josh I remember when he would try to out think me and give me that impish grin with his head tilted just so. That look melted my heart, I would do anything to see his smile one more time. I truly loved working with your son and he will always be in my heart.

Our sincerest condolences for the loss of your son,
The Corbett Family

Dear Michael family,

I am deeply sorry for your sudden loss of Joshua. I had the honor of being one of his counselors while being a part of The Bridge Center. Joshua was a standout camper who was kind, patient, and compassionate to all he encountered. I got to share many fun memories with Joshua, including archery competitions (he would always win), searching for the snapping turtle in the pond, talking about video games on the playground, and riding the tandem bike together. Camp connect will never feel quite the same without Joshua. I wish your family the best during these strange times.

Sincerely,
Troy Kent

Joshua always will have a special place in my heart. He was a wonderful young man. He was full of energy, enthusiasm and curiosity.
Even through his life was shorter than it should have been, he had a positive impact on people’s lives he touched.
You two were wonderful parents to him. May your memories of him get you through these difficult times.
Mrs. Martin
