Joshua Touchet Hite died Friday, Dec. 27, 2013, in Loveland, Colo., as the passenger in a car accident.
Memorial service was Dec. 31 at Brown, Owens and Brumley’s Joe B. Brown Memorial Chapel in Fort Worth with cremation to follow.
Joshua was born Sept. 23, 1992, in Bedford to John and Tammy Hite. He grew up most of his life on a rural farm near Alvord and graduated from Alvord High School. Joshua loved playing football and was a fanatical University of Texas football fan. He enjoyed the adventures of the outdoors, from camping to fishing, and he was always ready to lend a helping hand to others.
Joshua was in Colorado during the recent history-making floods and spent much of his time helping others move and save personal belongings and then clean and start rebuilding after the storms. His heart was as big as Texas, and he loved his many family members with a passion.
Joshua was preceded in death by his grandmother, Nancy Kay Sutherlin Jackson; and aunt Bobina Jackson.
He is survived by his father, John Hite of Hurst; mother Tammy Hite of Richland Hills; sister Brooke Hite of Hurst; grandparents John and Jean Hite of Hurst; grandfather Malcolm Jackson of Richland Hills; aunt Robin Scott Hite of Arlington; and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles and friends.
Memorials may be made in Joshua’s name to Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
