Joshua Gutierrez

1998 - 2021



On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, Joshua Gutierrez, 22, of Shelby, proud loving father to Katrina Rose Gutierrez, passed away due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.  He was born October 6, 1998, in Shelby, the son of Armando Sr. and Paula (Ramirez) Gutierrez.

Josh was an impeccable son, boyfriend, brother, nephew, uncle, and grandson.  Above all, his biggest success was becoming an outstanding father and settling into his family life.  Though he faced many obstacles, nothing could stand in the way of achieving his goals.  He was a fighter, a go-getter; his efforts and dedication made him the hardworking man so many grew to love.  He enjoyed nature and working on cars; he was truly a jack of all trades.  Any spare time was spent with family and making new friends.  Grilling out became a regular occurrence as he loved the outdoors.  His infectious smile, radiant energy, and unbreakable spirit reached several hearts, and for that, he will forever be missed.

Joshua is survived by: his parents, six siblings, daughter, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, nieces, nephews, and significant other.

Joshua was preceded in death by: his aunt and grandfather.

Funeral services will be conducted privately. Interment will be in Mount Hope Cemetery, Shelby.

The Harris Funeral Home, in Shelby, is handling arrangements.

So I didn't personally ever meet you in person, but I know that you was a big part of my lil sis life (Makala) her and I grew up together. I know you supported Makala and your guys daughter, I appreciate that. I moved to utah, when Makala had your daughter, I wanted to be there so bad, I coudlnt but I was there as best as I could and wanted to meet you. We went to high school together though, I remember seeing you in the hallways. Anyway, rest in peace and please continue to watch over Makala and your daughter. Keep them safe. Love ya even though I've never spoke to you, which I wish I would've.
