Joshua Alex Brugh
May 6, 1979 - April 3, 2017
Joshua Brugh
Joshua Brugh

Joshua Alex Brugh, 37, Rochester, was surrounded by his loving family when he passed away at 10:10 p.m. Monday, April 3, 2017, at his residence. This followed a courageous battle with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma brain tumor.

In Fulton County, on May 6, 1979, Joshua Alex Brugh was born. He was a treasured son of Jim and Ronda Hood Brugh. As one of the five Brugh children, he shared his childhood with a sister, Audra, and three brothers, Jason, Joel and Jim. During his high school years, he was a teammate and captain for the Culver Military Academy soccer team. He graduated from CMA in 1997.

Continuing his formal education, Joshua garnered academic scholarships and attended Wabash College. He later earned a degree as a registered nurse. Before joining the nursing profession, he enjoyed the adventure and excitement of the ocean waters. Joshua trained and earned his captain's license and led charter fishing runs out of Seward, Alaska, 30 to 40 miles out into the ocean in search of halibut and other fish. One summer, Joshua served on a landing craft in the Bering Sea, delivering heavy equipment to an island near the Russian coast. The job was a challenge in the rough, icy waters.

Joshua earned his certification as a scuba diver in Thailand. One winter, his special talents also took him to the Florida Keys to run fishing expeditions.

Left to cherish the memory of Joshua are his parents, Jim and Ronda, Rochester; a sister, Audra Lomba and husband Ray Anthony, Valley Center, Calif.; two brothers, Jason Brugh and wife Nicole, Flagstaff, Ariz., and Jim Brugh and wife Melissa, Mishawaka; nieces and nephews Addison Brugh, Tenaya Brugh, Zander Brugh, Jackson Hayes, Ashlyn Hayes, and Sierra Bryant and husband Justin; and great-nephew Ira. His maternal grandmother is Doris Hood, Rochester.

Joshua was preceded in death by his brother, Joel Brugh, on July 28, 2009; his maternal grandfather, Kenneth Hood, on Oct. 2, 2004; and his paternal grandparents, Mildred Brugh, on Nov. 5, 2012, and Joseph Brugh, on Oct. 15, 2014.

A private family service will occur. Joshua will be laid to rest on the family plot at the Rochester IOOF Cemetery. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Good Family Funeral Home of Rochester.

Preferred memorials in lieu of flowers may be made through the NICF to the Fulton County Cancer Fund, 715 Main St., Rochester, IN 46975. Online expressions of sympathy may be made to his family at www.goodfamilyfh.com.

Jim, Ronda and family, We were so sorry to read of Josh's death. What a valiant battle he fought. The picture of his is wonderful he still looks like that young fellow I remember coming into the restaurant. Your entire family was always such a delight. We will remember you all in our prayers. Our deepest sympathies.
