Joshua D. Taylor

August 26, 2022



Joshua D. Taylor, 32, of Hanover Township, died suddenly on Friday, Aug. 26, 2022.

Josh graduated from Hanover Area High School in 2008 and attended LCCC. Josh had a passion for the culinary arts, and he loved his job as a cook at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre.


Josh was a diehard Philadelphia Eagles, Yankees, and 76ers fan, as well as a passionate fan of WWE wrestling, attending live wrestling shows whenever he could. He knew the lyrics to any song imaginable, and he was also an excellent dancer.


Family was important to Josh, and he loved being godfather to his cousin, Jimmy Kinsman.

Josh could light up any room he walked into, and he always looked forward to hanging out with his many friends on weekends. He never did anything halfway; Josh put all of himself into everything he did. He will be remembered as a kind, generous spirit who made the lives of everyone around him a little bit better.


He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Robert Brown.

He is survived by his parents, Jack and Susan Taylor; his twin sisters, Jacqueline and Jessica; his maternal grandparents James and Patricia Kinsman; his paternal grandmother, Helena Fleming; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.


Funeral services will be held on Friday at 9:30 am from the Nat & Gawlas Funeral Home, 89 Park Avenue, Wilkes-Barre.  A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 10 am in Our Lady of Hope Parish, 40 Park Avenue, Wilkes-Barre. Interment will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Hanover Township.


A visitation for family and friends will be held from 5 – 8 pm on Thursday at the funeral home.
