Minneapolis, MN

Joshua Hastings Smith passed away on the morning of February 15, 2024 in the University of Minnesota/Fairview Hospital just days before his 44th birthday. Josh made the decision to enter hospice at the hospital once he realized that his ongoing battle with alcohol was coming to an end. He was surrounded by family in his final days and was able to share a few memories and messages of love and good-bye. Josh wanted those friends and family that he was not able to see to know that he loved them and the times that they shared; he felt blessed by their presence in his life. Josh is survived by his son, Jacobi Hastings, who spent as much time as he could with his dad while in the hospital. He stayed positive and hopeful and was a great comfort. Josh is also survived by his parents: father, Rodney Smith; mother and step-father, Jennifer and Richard Martin; sister, Erin Smith (Josh Swemle); brother, Justin Smith (Amanda); step-brothers, Jason Martin (Theresa), Justin Martin (Tina) and Nick Martin (Amy); and step-sister, Stephanie Martin as well as his birthmother, Jaye Vogel. Josh has many nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and cousins who enjoyed his fun, loving spirit; he will be missed and especially by his constant companion, Nala. There will be a celebration of Joshua’s life on Saturday, May 4 at Pinstripes at 3849 Gallagher Dr. in Edina from 1-3pm. We will share our memories and chat with those that knew Josh somewhere along his life’s journey. Snacks and dessert will be served. Comments will be made around 2pm. Please share this celebration information with anyone that you think might want to be there. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider donating blood or making a financial donation to the Minneapolis Red Cross or the Memorial Blood Centers.
