Joshua Davis died at his home in Rancho Murieta, CA on February 1, 2005. Josh loved football. He played on the JV team and was also a wrestling champion at Sheldon High School. He had a way to always make others laugh, especially his Mom. He had so many friends and family that loved so much about him. He was known at school for always "sticking up for the little guys." Josh was very repected by his friends and also their parents. He was "such a kind-hearted, caring young man." Josh would always say, "I know." We can only hope that he will "know" just how much his family loves and misses him.

Joshua is survived by his mother, Linda Davis; brother, Markie Fabela; sister, Paige Davis; aunts and uncles Eddie and Denise Braquinho, Joey Braquinho and fiancé Cody Spencer, Scott and Jennifer Bailey, and numerous cousins.

In lieu of flowers, a trust fund has been established at El Dorado Savings Bank, 7248 Murieta Parkway, Rancho Murieta, CA 95683

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Feb. 5, at 11 a.m. in Rancho Murieta. Cremation was requested. Additional info will be available at
