Joshua was born on January 3, 1987 to mother Maria Theresa Lopez and father Joe Lee Trujillo and raised in Albuquerque, NM. In 2004 he met his wife Daphne and went on to have 3 children together, Gabriel, Michael and Atticus.
Joshua got his GED and went onto CNM for his HVAC license and started his own company thereafter. He enjoyed spending time w/ his children and his family from having barbeques to family gatherings as long as he was spending time with kids, his brothers, sisters, nieces & nephews you would see a huge smile on his face. He enjoyed going to Bingo on his birthday and had a great love for his dog Teddy.
Family was very important to him and he loved his family with all of his heart, he never forgot to express his love and appreciation, especially his love for his sons. Joshua struggled with his own trials and tribulations as many do but he overcame so many obstacles he faced and we are proud of how he turned his life around. The best things about Joshua that will miss the most are his beautiful green eyes when he looked at you they would pierce your soul, his tight teddy bear hugs and his funny jokes, he was cracking jokes until he couldn’t any more.
Joshua's Life Celebration will begin with a Visitation Friday at 11:00 am at Reflections Chapel followed by a Life Celebration at 12 noon. Burial will follow at Vista Verde Memorial Park.
Pallbearers will be Joe, Krush, Stephen, Gabriel, Jude, Javi, Cruz, Joe, Jr., Nathaniel and Louis.
