Josiah Daniel “Joe” Crain, 25, of Lehigh Acres, FL, passed away unexpectedly Monday, September 3, 2018 in Lehigh Acres.

Josiah was born in St. Augustine and had most recently lived in Leheigh Acres, coming from Ellenboro, NC. His hobbies included farming, golf, hiking, swimming, canoeing, fishing, and camping. He was an enthusiast of all things outdoor. His love of the outdoors led him to pursue a variety of occupations that allowed him to work in nature, and he was most recently employed in landscaping. Josiah will be most remembered by those who knew him for his love for and commitment to his family and friends, his irrepressible good humor, and his thoughtfulness.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Joseph B. and Edith Crain of Hollister, FL; and his maternal grandparents, A.K. and Peggy Reynolds of Interlachen.
