On Friday 31st July Josh suffered with a splitting head ache. Josh asked his partner Tayla to take him to the Dannevirke hospital. Next thing Josh was taken away in an ambulance to Palmerston North Emergency Clinic

Josh couldnt remember things. After further examination Josh and his family were told Josh has suffered from a major brain bleed. Josh was soon choppered to Wellington ICU

Placed in an induced coma where he lies waiting to be awoken

Thursday 7th they removed Josh's oxygen as family were told his brain was far to damaged.

On Friday 8th at around 12:50pm Josh passed over.

Josh and Tayla had great plans this year to buy there first home have another child and in the near future marrie.

Please continue to support Tayla and Lilah during this time.

Josh is a fighter and lived life to the fullest he will be missed by all who knew him he leaves behind his beautiful daughter, son, partner, family, and friends who love him dearly ❤

Help take the load off Tayla and Josh's family while they continue to support each other through this hard time. Hundreds of messages of support have come in and we thought this would be an appropriate way for whanau and friends to support the Sprague Whanau.
