Asadow, Joshua

Joshua Asadow, beloved son of Gail Asadow and Michael Peltier, passed away Wednesday, March 22, 2017 after a long courageous fight with brain cancer. He was born in Farmington on April 18, 1988. He graduated from E. C. Goodwin High School in 2006. Josh was a standout football and baseball player as well as an avid motorcycle enthusiast. He loved showing off his yellow Harley Davidson Road Glide. He was employed by F.J. Chard & Sons up until his illness. He received his p2 plumber license at the age of 21. Through the generosity of Fred, Berle and Jim Chard, his insurance was paid for allowing him to seek treatment at Sloan Memorial Kettering Hospital. A big thank you to Josh’s boss Ron Paul for being an awesome mentor, boss and close friend. Josh was always the life of the party. A prankster, always funny, sometimes reckless, but never failed to put a smile on everyone around him. Joshua is survived by his siblings, Jesse Asadow, Mike Peltier Jr., and Allie Peltier, his grandparents, Pop and Bam Asadow, his aunts and uncles, Jesse and Saki Asadow, Howard and Jennifer Asadow, and James Peltier Sr., and a special family member who took the time to visit and inquire about Josh throughout his illness, Jack Shearer. Joshua started his family life with his fiancée Jen and step son Jared. He worked very hard to buy his first house for them. Even while being sick Joshua pushed himself to renovate the house to make it their home. Together they all lived a happy life. Joshua now leaves behind his fiancée Jennifer Martinez, step son Jared Greenlee and their bulldog Jack Asadow Martinez and her parents Haydee Mauroza and Feliz Martinez. Josh also had a special bond with the Spanish culture. His nickname was gringo loco. He was loved by many, many people. A shout out to all his friends in New Britain, Moonie, Kit, Sherill, Hope, Noyda, the Swim Team, Daya and all the guys he rode bikes with, crazy Feefo and Daze. You all enriched his life.

    Dearest Asadow Family,

    My prayers are with you.

    We had the privilege of knowing Josh. He endured his illness with great courage and grace. Always polite and kind.
    Always thinking about his loved ones.

    A gentle giant, a kind heart, a wonderful Persona.

    My heart is with you, my prayers with you.

    I once heard this said: “It seems impossible but there will be a day when the good memories will put a smile in your heart and no more tears in your eyes”.

    With love,
