Tribute & Message From The Family

Joshua Isaiah Smithers, 22, of Lakeway, Texas passed from death unto life on November 6, 2018.

The funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm at Austin Christian Fellowship on Friday, November 16, 2018. Executive Pastor Will Davis, Jr. will be officiating. Burial will follow the funeral at Hudson Bend Cemetery at 2:30 pm. on Friday, November 16, 2018. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home in Lakeway, Texas.

Joshua was born in Palo Alto, California, October 14, 1996. He graduated from Lake Travis High School and was attending Austin Community College studying Business Management.

Joshua loved his big brother Jesus Christ with all his heart and was the kindest young man. He loved people and was quick to forgive the shortcomings of human behavior. Joshua was wise beyond his years and always had a smile to share with others. God's wisdom showed beautifully through Joshua who was a consistent student of the Word of God and prayed for and with the prayer team at church. Joshua loved to play his guitar and admired many Christian artists. Joshua, while here on this earth, was a constant companion of Jesus Christ and now is presented faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. Joshua has indeed been kept from falling. We spoke often of what his mansion would look like in heaven, he said he didn't know because he would always be sharing a room with Jesus! This is without any doubt; and he is longing for you to join him too.

Joshua is survived by his dad Steven, mother Vanessa, brothers Samuel, Malachi, and Solomon; maternal grandmother Jenette, and extended family of Aunt's, Uncles' and cousins who love him deeply.

Joshua is preceded in death by his grandfathers Robert Edward and Leslie, and his brother Elijah Jacob.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Austin Christian Fellowship. The family wishes to thank all of our church families for their love and support and Luke 4:18 Ministries, without which these days of deepest sorrow would be even more difficult.

While we KNOW that Joshua is in heaven, the absence of his presence is gut-wrenching. Joshua loves all of you, and will see you again soon. Stay in faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the power of His mighty Word.

Thank you and amen. He is in our Master's loving arms.


Condolence & Memory Journal

I had the opportunity to know Josh as a teacher at his high school. I was never a teacher of his but, knew him from passing in the hallway. He has a great smile and a good guy to talk with.
Peace be with you.
