Josh Thalman, who was born Nov. 23, 1991, passed away on Oct. 26, 2012. He is survived by his brother Jacob Thalman, father Joseph Thalman, mother Cozette Dunlap, and an amazing array of extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and more) and loyal friends, all of whom will continue to cherish and celebrate Josh’s life for years to come.
Thalman’s life was cut way too short, but the time he spent here with us was full of adventure, travel and fabulous memories. Most of his adventures were part of a boarding sport – body boarding, snow boarding, skim boarding and skate boarding. Some of his other passions were photography, film-making and a special kinship with animals. Thalman loved to travel both near and far. While he visited many places in this world, his favorites were Hawaii, New Zealand, Switzerland, the mountains in Utah, Lake Powell, Shasta, Glacier National Park and more recently the spot that he chose to make his primary residence, Boulder, Colo.
Thalman was loved by many and will be missed very much. He had a lot of close and special relationships as a result of his loving and generous heart. Like all of us, Thalman struggled personally, and we are still uncertain as to the reason he moved on from this life. What we do know, unequivocally, is that he left an indelible impression in our hearts as a kind, giving, and caring young man. Those who loved him are certain that his beautiful spirit will remain with us forever.
