Joshua Brandon Hedtke resident of Menasha Wisconsin left our world unexpectedly September 11th 2023. Joshua was a kind, gentle spirit that always tried to make those around him laugh. He had the unique ability to light up an entire room with his presence despite the darkness it contained. He enjoyed traveling, backpacking and as many of his close friends will tell you, he loved to talk your ear off! He was fascinated by tales of Bigfoot and marveled at the peace and beauty only nature could provide. He was committed to sustainability and protecting our planet, making It his life mission to save the pollinators and preserve the delicate ecosystem he so deeply treasured. On any given day you could find Joshua hiking with his dogpack and fiance Ashley Huelsbeck, reading poetry, playing guitar, singing, golfing or watching true crime shows. Although life will never be the same without him he will always be remembered for his goofy energy, musical talent and charisma. Joshua is survived by his mother Debra Lupien, Stepfather Ron Lupien, Fiance Ashley huelsbeck, The Hedtke Family, Janice Johnston, Ella, Roxie Machieavelli, Piper, Shiloh, Oscar, and Flea.
He was preceded in death by Arnold Hedtke and Roger Mengedoht , Odie Hedtke and Quinn Huelsbeck
