Joshua “Josh” Lee Stonecipher, 38, of Decatur, died Sunday, April 18, 2021. He was born August 31, 1982 in Decatur Memorial Hospital, Decatur, IL, the son of Scott Stonecipher and Patricia Stonecipher. He was the middle of three children.
Josh’s visitation will be on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Faith Baptist Church (875 West Grove Road, Decatur, IL 62521). Memorials may be made to Laura Stonecipher, c/o Staley Credit Union #44171 (3330 North Woodford St., Decatur, IL 62523). Tanzyus Logan Funeral Service and Care is in charge of arrangements.
Josh graduated from Mt. Zion High School in 2001 and married his high school sweetheart Laura Joan (Bowman) in December 22, 2001. They have three children. Josh lived in Pensacola, Florida, and San Diego, CA during his six year service in the U.S. Marine Corps. He advanced to sergeant E5 USMC-11 Air Traffic Control Radar Technician. In May 2005 Josh received his CDL licensing and completed his education at Richland Community College with an Associate’s degree in Arts on December 19, 2011. He completed the Gateway Foundation Residential Program in November 2020. Josh was CDL driver for Skeff Distributing, worked construction and was a member of the American Legion.
Josh was known to be the life of the party, the guy who always had something funny to say. He had tattoos, a bald head, and a bright smile with a dimple. His favorite things were Harley motorcycles, tattoos, tools, tinkering with motor vehicles, and wood working. His smile and outgoing personality will be missed the most.
Josh is survived by his wife, Laura; children: daughter Autumn Marie Stonecipher, son Bradley Scott Stonecipher, and daughter Lily Ann Stonecipher; parents Patricia (Bishop) Stonecipher and Scott Stonecipher and wife Penny; in-laws Steve Bowman and wife, Ellen; siblings Christopher Stonecipher (Amanda, Kobi and Cali), Nicole (Stonecipher) Smith (Ryan, Madi and Emma), Brian Bowman (Olivia), Peter Bowman (Becky, Jaxon and Carter).
