Joshua Ray Tillery was born December 9, 1987 to Carol Howard and James Tillery. After graduating Elwood High School, he joined the Indiana National Guard. He served for two years and was also a member of the Special Op's Team. He then moved to Texas to pursue his art, which was tattooing. Joshua's kids were his everything. There was no way you could be in his presence and not smile. He was the most selfless guy you'd meet and quite the charmer. He was full of life and unapologetically himself. Joshua leaves to cherish his memory his parents, Carol and James (Myra); his children, Anthony, Araya, Jazzlyn, Jaylee, Jayceona and Ryleigh; his sweetheart, Keisha; his sisters, Carolyn, Kbalee and Christina; his brothers, Zach, Joshua, Frank (Cachet), Cornelius, Joe, Jason and Charles; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
